Javelin (Ol. 10, 71-9)
Phrastor hit the mark with the javelin. Niceus sent the
stone flying from his circling arm beyond all the others,
and his fellow soldiers raised a sudden burst of loud
cheering. The lovely light of the moon's beautiful face lit
up the evening and in the delightful festivities the whole
precinct rang with a song in praise of victory. Even now
we will follow the first beginnings and sing a namesake
song of proud victory.
