OME the army of cavalry, others of infantry
or of ships say upon this dark earth
that is the fairest. But I say fairest is that: whoever you love.
It's easy to make this clear to all.
For she who far surpassed all human beings in beauty, Helen
abandoned the finest man and to Troy sailed,
and neither her child nor her beloved parents thought her, not for a moment [ ].
This made me now think of Anaktoria, not being here anymore, Oh I wish I could see the enamoring step and the shiny glare of her face, rather than Lydians' chariots and infantry's battles and armor.
φίλτατον Γαίας γένος Ὀρράνω τε
ο]ἰ μὲν ἰππήων στρότον οἰ
