Pindar

134 Stob. ecl. 4.39.6 (5.903 Wachsmuth-Hense) Πινδάρου θρήνων·

εὐδαιμόνων δραπέτας οὐκ ἔστιν ὄλβος

135 Schol. Pind. Ol. 1.127a καὶ ἐν θρήνοις τὸν αὐτὸν ἀριθμὸν τίθησι τῶν ὑπὸ τοῦ Οἰνομάου ἀναιρεθέντων μνηστήρων·

πέφνε δὲ τρεῖς καὶ δέκ᾿ ἄνδρας· τετράτῳ δ᾿ αὐτὸς πεδάθη

136a Aristid. or. 31.12 (2.215 Keil) ἐπέρχεταί μοι τὸ τοῦ Πινδάρου προσθεῖναι,

ἄστρα τε καὶ ποταμοὶ καὶ κύματα πόντου

τὴν ἀωρίαν τὴν σὴν ἀνακαλεῖ.

Clem. Alex. strom 3.3.17 (2.203 Stählin) Πίνδαρος περὶ τῶν ἐν Ἐλευσῖνι μυστηρίων λέγων ἐπιφέρει·

Threnoi

134 Stobaeus, Anthology (On Happiness). “From Pindar’s threnoi”:

the happiness of blessed men is no fugitive

135 Scholion on Ol. 1.79. “In the threnoi as well he gives the same number of suitors slain by Oenomaus”:

he killed thirteen men; he himself was checked by the fourteenth

136a Aristides, Oration 31 (Funeral Oration for Eteoneus). “It occurs to me to add the line of Pindar,

the stars and rivers and waves of the sea, invoke again and again your untimely death.”

137 FOR HIPPOCRATES OF ATHENS(?)11

Clement of Alexandria, Miscellanies. “In speaking of the Eleusinian mysteries, Pindar adds”:

Blessed is he who sees them12 and goes beneath the earth; he knows the end of life and knows its Zeus-given beginning.
