Since I’ve brought Apollo to mind, I am of the mind to mention something: something wisemen say about him – this doesn’t concern questions of misfortune in the matter of Hyacinth’s murder or his mistreatment of Daphne – but rather the condemnation and order of exile from heaven for the Cyclopes’ death. He was sent to earth to share in human luck. Then he became a menial for Admetus in Thessalia and for Leadmon in Phrygia – in this he was not alone: Poisden was with him. They both made bricks and built the wall. And, they didn’t even receive their full wage, they say the pair are still owed 30 odd Trojan drachmae.
Greek Text & Notes:
 ἐπεὶ δὲ ἅπαξ τοῦ Ἀπόλλωνος ἐμνήσθην, βούλομαι καὶ τὰ ἄλλα εἰπεῖν, ἃ περὶ αὐτοῦ οἱ σοφοὶ τῶν ἀνθρώπων λέγουσιν, οὐχ ὅσα περὶ τοὺς ἔρωτας ἐδυστύχησεν οὐδὲ τοῦ Ὑακίνθου τὸν φόνον οὐδὲ τῆς Δάφνης τὴν ὑπεροψίαν, ἀλλʼ ὅτι καὶ καταγνωσθεὶς ἐπὶ τῷ τῶν Κυκλώπων θανάτῳ καὶ ἐξοστρακισθεὶς διὰ τοῦτο ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, ἐπέμφθη εἰς τὴν γῆν ἀνθρωπίνῃ χρησόμενος τῇ τύχῃ· ὅτε δὴ καὶ ἐθήτευσεν ἐν Θετταλίᾳ παρὰ Ἀδμήτῳ καὶ ἐν Φρυγίᾳ παρὰ Λαομέδοντι, παρὰ τούτῳ μέν γε ουʼ μόνος ἀλλὰ μετὰ τοῦ Ποσειδῶνος, ἀμφότεροι πλινθεύοντες ὑπʼ ἀπορίας καὶ ἐργαζόμενοι τὸ τεῖχος· καὶ οὐδὲ ἐντελῆ τὸν μισθὸν ἐκομίσαντο παρὰ τοῦ Φρυγός, ἀλλὰ προσώφειλεν αὐτοῖς πλέον ἢ τριάκοντα, φασί, δραχμὰς Τρωϊκάς
ἐπεὶ δὲ ἅπαξ τοῦ Ἀπόλλωνος ἐμνήσθην,
Now since once concerning Apollo I am called to mind
βούλομαι καὶ τὰ ἄλλα εἰπεῖν,
I am determined also other things to say
ἃ περὶ αὐτοῦ οἱ σοφοὶ τῶν ἀνθρώπων λέγουσιν,
those things concerning him the wise of me they say
οὐχ ὅσα περὶ τοὺς ἔρωτας ἐδυστύχησεν οὐδὲ τοῦ Ὑακίνθου τὸν φόνον
not as much concerning the questions he suffered bad luck nor the murder of Hyacinth
οὐδὲ τῆς Δάφνης τὴν ὑπεροψίαν,
nor the of Daphen her mistreatment
ἀλλʼ ὅτι καὶ καταγνωσθεὶς ἐπὶ τῷ τῶν Κυκλώπων θανάτῳ
but rather that condemnation for the of the Cyclopes death
καὶ ἐξοστρακισθεὶς διὰ τοῦτο ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ,
and beings banish because of this from heaven
ἐπέμφθη εἰς τὴν γῆν ἀνθρωπίνῃ χρησόμενος τῇ τύχῃ·
he was sent to earth to share in human fate
ὅτε δὴ καὶ ἐθήτευσεν ἐν Θετταλίᾳ παρὰ Ἀδμήτῳ
when since also he served as a menial in Thessalia for Admetus
καὶ ἐν Φρυγίᾳ παρὰ Λαομέδοντι,
and in Phrygia for Laomedon
παρὰ τούτῳ μέν γε ουʼ μόνος
in this he was indeed not alone
ἀλλὰ μετὰ τοῦ Ποσειδῶνος,
but with Poseidon
ἀμφότεροι πλινθεύοντες ὑπʼ ἀπορίας καὶ ἐργαζόμενοι τὸ τεῖχος·
They both together making brick by anxiety and working the walls
A.make into bricks, “τὴν γῆν” Hdt.1.179; π. πλίνθους make bricks, LXXGe.11.3: abs., make bricks, Ar.Nu.1126, Ra.800, PCair.Zen.633.21,25 (iii B. C.), PLond.1.131.302 (i A. D.), Luc.Sacr.4:—Med., Th.2.78.
- build of brick, “τείχη” Id.4.67.
III. Pass. is variously expld. by Gramm. as to be changed into bricks, built up with bricks, tortured or enslaved, EM367.43, etc.; to be duped, Hsch., Suid.
- πλινθευομένη, ἡ, tax on brickmaking, POxy.502.44 (ii A. D.).
καὶ οὐδὲ ἐντελῆ τὸν μισθὸν ἐκομίσαντο παρὰ τοῦ Φρυγός,
and neither was completed the reward brought from Phyrgia
ἀλλὰ προσώφειλεν αὐτοῖς πλέον ἢ τριάκοντα,
but but it was it was owed to them more than 30
The imperfect, here, seems to imply the wage still has not been paid.
φασί, δραχμὰς Τρωϊκάς
30 drachmas Troy
