ὀρθῶσαι τὸν κυρτὸν ὑποσχόμενος Διόδωρον
Σωκλῆς τετραπέδους τρεῖς ἐπέθηκε λίθους
τοῦ κυρτοῦ στιβαροὺς ἐπὶ τὴν ῥάχιν ἀλλὰ πιεσθεὶς
τέθνηκεν, γέγονεν δ᾽ ὀρθότερος κανόνος.

— Paton edition

Socles, promising to set Diodorus’ crooked back straight, piled three solid stones, each four feet square, on the hunchback’s spine. He was crushed and died, but he has become straighter than a ruler.
