Pseudo-Anacharsis, Epistles 5 (to Hanno; tr. Anne M. McGuire):Newer› ‹Older
For me, a Scythian cloak serves as my garment, the skin of my feet as my shoes, the whole earth as my resting place, milk, cheese and meat as my favorite meal, hunger as my main course.
ἐµοὶ µὲν περίβληµα χλαῖνα Σκυθική, ὑπόδημα δέρμα ποδῶν, κοίτη δὲ πᾶσα γῆ, δεῖπνον ἄριστον γάλα, τυρός, κρέας, πᾶν ὄψον πεῖνα.
