Abstract

This paper concerns the last couplet of an epitaph by Meleager for Heraclitus of Ephesus (AP 7.79.5-6), arranged as a dialogue between the deceased and a passerby. It argues that the segment Μὴ τρηχύς, ἐπεὶ τάχα καὶ σύ τι πεύσῃ / τρηχύτερον should be taken together and attributed to the passerby, whereas the final words Πάτρας χαῖρε σὺ δ’ ἐξ Ἐφέσου should be assigned to Heraclitus.
