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:
Ῥοδώπιδος ἀνάθημα: ὀβελίσκοι ἐν Δελφοῖς πολλοί. Ἀπελλᾶς δὲ ὁ Ποντικὸς οἴεται καὶ ἐν Αἰγύπτῳ πυραμίδα, Ἡροδότου ἐλέγχοντος τὴν δόξαν. ἦν δὲ Θρᾷσσα τὸ γένος, ἐδούλευσε δὲ σὺν Αἰσώπῳ Ἄδμονι Μιτυληναίῳ, ἐλυτρώσατο δὲ αὐτὴν Χάραξος, ὁ Σαπφοῦς ἀδελφός. ἡ δὲ Σαπφὼ Δωρίχαν αὐτὴν καλεῖ.
