Sophron, Mime fr. 1. 3-5


“Grief overcomes me every time I remember that he was planning to leave me even as he kissed me”


ὀδύνη μ᾿ ἔχει,

ὅταν ἀναμνησθῶ

ὥς με κατεφίλει ᾿πιβούλως μέλλων

με καταλιμπάν[ει]ν


Sophron? Mimes? Yeah, not part of our usual fare…But Plato read them to help himself sleep.
