Default Good arrangement for Epitaph of Seikilos?

There is an ancient song, Epitaph of Seikilos, arguribly the oldest complete written song extant. It is from second century B.C. Greece.

It is in Mixolydian mode and can be easily played on the pipes, the first note played being F. Has anyone added gracenote embellishments to it? I find it to be a very lovely tune.

Here is an unembellished jig version.

I did not find attribution to a composer.

Cheers,

Thanks JES, I already have an unadorned copy of the song, I have put it into the GBH sheet music style.
