Asia Minor: Eurymedon, the River
On Those Who Fell at Eurymedon
Simonides (c. 556–468 B.C.)
 
Translated by J. H. Merivale

THESE by the streams of famed Eurymedon
Their short but brilliant race of life have run;
In winged ships and on the embattled field
Alike, they forced the Median bows to yield,
Breaking their foremost ranks. Now here they lie,        5
Their names inscribed on rolls of victory.
