THOSE WHO FOUGHT FOR
THE ACHAEAN LEAGUE
You were gallant who fought and fell in glory;
unafraid of those who were victorious everywhere.
You are immaculate, though Diaios and Kritolaos were to blame.
When the Greeks want to boast, they will say
“Our nation breeds men such as these”, about you.
So marvellous their praise for you shall be—.
This was written in Alexandria by an Achaean;
in the seventh year of the reign of Ptolemy Lathyrus.
