Headword: Rhodôpidos anathêma
Adler number: rho,211
Translated headword: Rhodopis' dedication, Rhodopis' offering
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Many obelisks in Delphi [sc. are so called]. But Apellas of Pontus[1] thinks that [sc. the phrase refers] also to a pyramid in Egypt -- despite the fact that Herodotus refutes the opinion.[2] She was a Thracian by birth, but was enslaved with Aesop to [I]admon[3] of Mytilene, before Charaxos, Sappho's brother, ransomed her. Sappho used to call her Doricha.[4]
Greek Original:
