Reading at Random in Classical Literature
τίς εἶπεν αυτ̣[….]λ̣ε..ρ.[….].
“σὺ πεντάμετρα συντίθει, σὺ δ̣’ ἡ̣[ρῷο]ν,
σὺ δὲ τραγῳδε̣[ῖν] ἐκ θεῶν ἐκληρώσω̣”;
δοκέω μὲν οὐδείς.
Who said […], ‘You – compose elegiac verses; you – heroic verse; and you – the gods have assigned you the writing of tragedy’? No one, I think!
