[Meaning she who is] grieving in the soul; "beside the tomb of Ajax on the wave-washed shores I sit, grieving, heavy-spirited Areta."[1]
Greek Original:
*qumobarh/s: th\n yuxh\n a)lgunome/nh: sh=ma par' *ai)a/nteion e)pirroithi/+sin a)ktai=s qumobarh\s a)reta\ mu/romai e(zome/na.
The headword adjective is extracted from the quotation.
[1] Greek Anthology 7.146.1-2 (Antipater of Sidon), quoted more fully at pi 1620. ['Wave-washed' renders the term e)pirroithi/+sin, found here and in the Palatine ms of the Anthology. The Planudean ms is more likely to be correct: e)pi *(roithi/sin a)ktai=s ('upon the Rhoitean shores'), a reference to Cape Rhoitaion in the Troad where Ajax was buried.] 'Areta' is the Doric form of the word a)reth/ ('virtue', 'valor'), here personified, and grieving because deceit, not virtue, was the winner in the judgment over the arms of Achilles (the judgment that ultimately led to Ajax's death).
