Πέρροχος, ὡς ὄτ’ ἄοιδος ὀ Λέσβιος ἀλλοδάποισιν·
HE towers 'mong men of other lands,
The Lesbian singer ; he commands
Praise of the Dorian soldier-bands.
He fathomed well what men require :
He knew the pang of dumb desire ;
Three strings he added to his lyre.
Terpander, who from man hath ta'en
Passion's unextricated pain,
Forever o'er his race shall reign !
