Ἀρχόμεθ᾽, Ἡλιόδωρε; ποιήματα παίζομεν οὕτω
ταῦτα πρὸς ἀλλήλους; Ἡλιόδωρε, θέλεις;
ἆσσον ἴθ᾽, ὥς κεν θᾶσσον ὀλέθρου καὶ γὰρ ἔμ᾽ ὄψει
μακροφλυαρητὴν Ἡλιοδωρότερον.

— Paton edition

Shall we begin, Heliodorus ? Shall we play
thus at these poems together? Do you wish it,
Heliodorus ? “ Come near, that swifter thou mayst reach Death’s goal ”; for you will see in me a master of tedious twaddle more Heliodorian than yourself.
