Italiano: Laminetta orfica, oro, 5,9 x 4,9 x 3,2 cm, Museo Archeologico Statale di Vibo Valentia. Dalla necropoli di Hipponion (attuale Vibo Valentia, in Calabria), IV secolo a. C. Il testo di 16 righe scritto in greco dice:
<A Mnemosyne appartiene questo sepolcro. Appena che sarai venuto a morte / andrai alle case ben costruite di Ade: vi è sulla destra una fonte, / accanto ad essa si erge un bianco cipresso; / lì discendono le anime dei morti e cercano refrigerio. / A questa fonte non accostarti neppure; / ma più avanti troverai la fresca acqua che scorre / dal lago di Mnemosyne: vi saranno innanzi custodi / ed essi ti chiederanno in sicuro discernimento / che mai cerchi attraverso le tenebre di Ade funesto. / Dici: "Son figlio della Greve e del Cielo stellato; / di sete sono riarso e mi sento morire; ma datemi presto / la fresca acqua che scorre dal lago di Mnemosyne!". / Ed allora ti saranno misericordiosi per volere del sovrano di sotterra, / e ti daranno da bere l'acqua del lago di Mnemosyne. / Ed allora andrai lontano per la sacra via sulla quale anche gli altri / mystai e bacchoi si allontanano gloriosi.>
