Oὔτ᾽ ἐπὶ Δευκαλίωνος ὕδωρ, ὅτε πάντ᾽ ἐγενήθη,
οὔθ᾽ ὁ καταπρήσας τοὺς ἐπὶ γῆς Φαέθων,
ἀνθρώπους ἔκτεινεν ὅσους Ποτάμων ὁ ποιητὴς,
καὶ χειρουργήσας ὤλεσεν Ἑρμογένης.
ὥστ᾽ ἐξ αἰῶνος κακὰ τέσσαρα ταῦτ᾽ ἐγενήθη,
Δευκαλίων, Φαέθων, Ἑρμογένης, Ποτάμων.

— Paton edition

Nor water in Deucalion's day when all became
water, nor Phaethon who burned up the inhabitants of the earth, slew so many men as Potamon the poet and Hermogenes by his surgery killed. So from the beginning of the ages there have been these four curses, Deucalion, Phaethon, Hermogenes and Potamon.
