Λέαιναν ἢ δράκαιναν, ἀλλ’ οὐ μητέρα
καὶ τὸν σύνευνον ἄνδρα τὸν πατροκτόνον
ὁ τοῦ πατρὸς τιμωρός, ἐκτελῶν ὄπα
τὴν τοῦ θεοῦ κράτιστον ἄσκευος μόνος,
κτανὼν ἔθαλλεν, ὡς ὀνείροις τοῖς πάλαι
εἶδ’ ἡ θανοῦσα, πρὶν θάνῃ, τελεσφόροις.
ἡ δ’ αὐταδέλφη χαρμονῆς πεπλησμένη
ἀφῆκε λυπρὸν πένθος, ἀστε<ρ>γὲς δάκρυ.
