κατολοφύρομαι, κατολοφύρομαι, ματέρος αἷμα σᾶς, ὅ σ’ ἀναβακχεύει,, ὁ μέγας ὄλβος οὐ μόνιμος ἐν βροτοῖς, ἀνὰ δὲ λαῖφος ὥς τις ἀκάτου θοᾶς τινάξας δαίμων, κατέκλυσεν δεινῶν πόνων ὡς πόντου, λάβροις ὀλεθρίοισιν ἐν κύμασιν,

[I cry, I cry, your mother’s blood that drives you mad, great happiness in mortals never lasting, but like a sail of a swift ship, which a god shook up and plunged it with terrible troubles into the greedy and deadly waves of sea.]
