Fellini's Greek Class: eh-mar-psa-men

Amarcord (1973)




The poem is by Archilochos of Paros (680-645 B.C.).

The text in Greek:

Επτά νεκρών γα\ρ πεσόντων,
οu$ς ε)μάρψαμεν ποσίν
Χείλιοι ει)με/n φονήες 


Translation:

Of the seven the fallen corpses
we trampled with our feet
we were the thousand killers.
