Some Fragments on Wine

Panyassis fr. 12 (19 W; Stobaeus 3.18.21)

Alcaeus, Fr. 326. 1-4

“I don’t fathom the war of the winds:

how one wave courses from this side

another from that, and the one in the middle

we fall upon in our black ship.”

ἀσυννέτημμι τὼν ἀνέμων στάσιν,

τὸ μὲν γὰρ ἔνθεν κῦμα κυλίνδεται,

τὸ δ’ ἔνθεν, ἄμμες δ’ ὂν τὸ μέσσον

νᾶϊ φορήμμεθα σὺν μελαίναι
