Pindar, Pythian 5.12-13

 

“The wise carry god-given strength better too”

 

σοφοὶ δέ τοι κάλλιον

φέροντι καὶ τὰν θεόσδοτον δύναμιν.

 

(I was/am torn between “even” and “too” for that καὶ. I also ignored the assertive τοι–but I figure that the act of excerpting for quotation is performatively assertive anyway…)
