πρὸς τὸν μάντιν Ὄλυμπον Ὀνήσιμος ἦλθεν ὁ πύκτης,
εἰ μέλλει γηρᾶν βουλόμενος προμαθεῖν.
κἀκεῖνος, ναί, φησίν
ἐὰν ἤδη καταλύσῃς:

ἂν δέ γε πυκτεύῃς, ὡροθετεῖ σε Κρόνος.

— Paton edition

Onesimus the boxer came to the prophet Olympus wishing to learn if he were going to live to old age. And he said, “Yes, if you give up the ring now, but if you go on boxing, Saturn is your horoscope.”
