Texts

πρίν σ᾽ ἐναλείψασθαι, Δημόστρατε, χαῖρ᾽, ἱερὸν φῶς,
εἰπὲ τάλας: οὕτως εὔσκοπός ἐστι Δίων.
οὐ μόνον ἐξετύφλωσεν Ὀλυμπικόν, ἀλλὰ δι᾽ αὐτοῦ
εἰκόνος ἧς εἶχεν τὰ βλέφαρ᾽ ἐξέβαλεν.

— Paton edition

Before he anoints your eyes, Demostratus, say
“Adieu dear light," so successful is Dion. Not only did he blind Olympicus, but through his treatment of him put out the eyes of the portrait of himself he had.
