οὐ δέχεται Μάρκον τὸν ῥήτορα νεκρὸν ὁ Πλούτων,
εἰπών,
ἀρκείτω Κέρβερος ὧδε κύων.

εἰ δ᾽ ἐθέλεις πάντως, Ἰξίονι καὶ Μελίτωνι

τῷ μελοποιητᾖ, καὶ Τιτυῷ μελέτα.


οὐδὲν γὰρ σοῦ χεῖρον ἔχω κακόν, ἄχρις ἂν ἐλθὼν

ὧδε σολοικίζῃ Ῥοῦφος ὁ γραμματικός.

— Paton edition

Pluto will not receive the rhetor Marcus when dead, saying, “Let our one dog Cerberus be enough here ; but if thou wilt come in at any cost, declaim to Ixion, Melito the lyric poet, and Tityus. For I have no evil worse than thee, until the day when Rufus the grammarian shall come here with his solecisms.”
