᾽Αλλ᾽ ἔων φίλοσ ἄμμιν [ἄλλο]
λέχοσ ἄρνυσω νεώτερον
οὐ γὰρ τλάσομ᾽ ἔγω ξυνοίκην
νεῳ γ᾽ ἔσσα γεραιτερα. [transcription]

For if thou lovest us, choose another and a younger spouse, for I will not endure to live with thee, old woman with young man.

From the anthology of Stobaeus.

Next: 73: More shapely is Mnasidica, than gentle Gyrinno.
