ἀσπίδι μὲν Σαίων τις ἀγάλλεται, ἣν παρὰ θάμνῳ,One of the tribesmen in Thrace now delights in the shield I discarded
ἔντος ἀμώμητον, κάλλιπον οὐκ ἔθέλων:Unwillingly near a bush, for it was perfectly good,
αὐτον δ' ἔξεσάωσα. τί μοι μέλει ἀσπὶς ἔκείνη;But at least I got myself safely out. Why should I care for that shield?
ἔρρέτω: ἔξαῦτις κτήσομαι οὐ κακίω.Let it go. Some other time I'll find another no worse.
