Αὐτὴ δὲ Νιόβη Θήβας ἀπολιποῦτα, πρὸς τὸν πατέρα Τάνταλον ἧκεν εἰς Σίπυλον, κακεῖ Διῒ ἐυξαμένη την` μορφην` εἰς λίθον μετέβαλεν, καὶ χεῖται δάκρυα νύκτωρ, καὶ μεθ᾿ ἡμέραν τȏυ λίθου. Homer. Il. ult. v. 614.
Νυν̑ δέ που εν πέτρηϚιν, εν οὔρεϚιν οἰοπόλοιϚιν,
Ε᾿ν Σιπύλῳ, ὅθι φατι θεάων ἔμμεναι ἐυνὰς
Νυμφάων, αἵτ᾿ ἀμφ᾿ Α᾿χελωΐον ἐῤῥώσαντο,
Ε῎νθαλίθος τερ ἐοῦσα θεῶν εν κῄδεα πέςςει.
Nic. Lloydius.
