Ὠμοβοείου μοι παραθεὶς τόμον, Ἡλιόδωρε,
καὶ τρία μοι κεράσας ὠμοβοειότερα,
εὐθὺ κατακλύζεις ἐπιγράμμασιν. εἰ δ᾽ ἀσεβήσας
βεβρώκειν τινὰ βοῦν τῶν ἀπὸ Τρινακρίας,

βούλομ᾽ ἅπαξ πρὸς κῦμα χανεῖν εἰ δ᾽ ἐστὶ τὸ κῦμα
ἔνθε μακράν, ἄρας εἰς τὸ φρέαρ με βάλε.

— Paton edition

You serve me a slice of raw beef, Heliodorus,
and pour me out three cups of wine rawer than the beef, and then you wash me out at once with If sinning against heaven I have eaten
one of the oxen from Trinacria, I would like to gulp down the sea at once — but if the sea is too far from here, take me up and throw me into a well.
