Epitaph of Pyrrhiadas
This is the grave of Pyrrhiadas, who did not understand retreat,See Valentina Garulli, "Epitafio di Pyrriadas," Axon 1.1 (June 2017) 89-96.
But died here, far the foremost, fighting for this land.
μνᾶμ' ἐμμὶ Πυρριάδα, ὃς οὐκ ἠπίστατο φεύγειν,
ἀλλ' αὖθε πὲρ γᾶς τᾶσδε πολλὸν ἀριστεύων ἔθανε.
