Vetting Status: high

Greek Original:
Μενεδάϊος ἵππος: ὁ πολεμιστήριος. σᾶμα τόδε φθιμένου μενεδαί̈ου εἵσατο Δᾶμις ἵππου, ἐπεὶ στέρνον τοῦδε δαφοινὸν Ἄρης τύψε. Μενεδάϊος, καὶ κατὰ τροπὴν Μενεδήϊος.
Notes:
[1] Like delta 101, a faulty version of Greek Anthology 7.208.1-3; here the main error is that 'blood-red' should be nominative and apply to Ares.
[2] From Doric dialect to epic/Ionic.
