Traduction française
And his invention of the letters of the alphabet availed Palamedes naught to save 
him fromsuffering injustice at the hands of the very Achaeans who had been 
instructed by him and from being put to death by stoning. But as long as they were 
unlettered and unacquainted with this special learning of his, they permitted him to 
live. When, however, he had taught the others to read and write, and the Atreidae of 
course first of all, and along with their letters had shown them how to raise bale-fires 
and how to count the host—for previously they had not known how to count the 
multitude properly, as shepherds do their sheep —as soon as they had become more 
clever and proficient, then it was that they slew him.
