οἴει τὸν πώγωνα φρενῶν ποιητικὸν εἶναι,
καὶ διὰ τοῦτο τρέφεις, φίλτατε, μυιοσόβην.
κεῖρον ἐμοὶ πεισθεὶς ταχέως: οὗτος γὰρ ὁ πώγων
φθειρῶν ποιητής, οὐχὶ φρενῶν γέγονεν.

— Paton edition

Do you suppose that your beard creates brains and therefore you grow that fly-flapper ? Take my advice and shave it off at once ; for that beard is a creator of lice and not of brains.
