Alciato Emblem 51: Source in Greek
(trans Paton, II, 43-5)
Gaetulicus [On Archilochus]
This tomb by the sea is that of Archilochus, who first made the
Muse bitter dipping her in vipers' gall, staining mild Helicon
with blood. Lycambes knows it, mourning for his three daughters
hanged. Pass quietly by, O way-farer, lest haply thou arouse the
wasps that are settled on his tomb.
