THE CONVIVIAL EPIGRAMS 31.— ANTIPATER OF THESSALONICA I DREAD not the setting of the Pleiads/ nor the waves of the sea that roar round the stubborn rock, nor the Hghtning of great heaven so much as I dread a wicked man and water-drinkers who remember all our words. 2 32. HONESTUS Bacchus, leading the rout of the Graces, instituted in thee, Sicyon, the sermons of the jolly Muse.^ Indeed, very sweet are his rebukes and in laughter is his sting. A man in his cups teaches wisdom to a clever man of the town. 33.— PHILIPPUS Secretly advancing, O ivy, thy twisted creeping foot, thou throttlest me, the vine, sweet gift of Bacchus, mother of clusters. But thou dost not so much fetter me as thou dost destroy thine own lionour ; for who would set ivy on his brows without pouring out wine ? 34._PHILODEMUS I WISH no garlands of white violets again, no lyre- playing again, no Chian wine again, no Syrian myrrh again, no revelling again, no thirsty whore with me again. I hate these things that lead to madness. But bind my head with narcissus and let me taste the crooked flute, and anoint my limbs with saffron ointment, wet my gullet with wine of Mytilene and mate me with a virgin who will love her nest, * cp. the proverb /uktco ^jivanova arvfiitorav, " I hate a boon- companion with a good memory." ' i. e. the Satyric drama. See Book VII. 707. 85
