931N = S474 Oxyrhynchus papyrus (1st or early 2nd c. a.d.: comment on lyric poems)
. . . god intended . . . (with) requital . . .
931O = S475 = 992 Suppl. Hell. Michigan papyrus (3rd or 2nd c. b.c.)
‘. . . (not?) quietly shall I1 make (great?) . . . resound for Ilus’ line.’ . . . he went away along the sea-roads . . . From the battle (against the Amazon?) by the ships came (the mighty figure?) of Heracles,2 and he (and Laomedon) made an agreement: . . . he (destroyed utterly?) . . . he3 would give him in return (the horses) which the ruler had got from Zeus as recompense for his cup-bearer . . .4
- 1Poseidon is threatening the Trojans after Laomedon had cheated him and Apollo of their reward for building the walls of Troy.
- 2After his ninth labour (the acquisition of the girdle of the Amazon Hippolyta) Heracles put in at Troy. He agreed to destroy the sea-monster which was ravaging the country if Laomedon would give him the horses which his grandfather Tros received from Zeus in return for his son Ganymede.
- 3Laomedon; the syntax of the sentence is unclear.
- 4The papyrus has scraps of 4 more lines; the author may be Callimachus, who used the metre (archebulean, fr. 228) and dealt with the subject (frr. 537, 698) (Lloyd-Jones).
