τὸν τῶν κλεπτόντων μανύτορα Φοῖβον ἔκλεψεν
Εὐτυχίδης, εἰπών,
μὴ πάνυ πολλὰ λάλει,

σύγκρινον δὲ τέχνην τέχνῃ, καὶ χείρεσι χρησμούς,

καὶ μάντιν κλέπτῃ, καὶ θεὸν Εὐτυχίδῃ:

τῶν δ᾽ ἀχαλινώτων στομάτων χάριν αὐτίκα πραθείς,

τοῖς ὠνησαμένοις πᾶν ὃ θέλεις με λέγε.

— Paton edition

Eutychides stole Phoebus the detector of thieves, saying, "Speak not too much, but compare thy art with mine and thy oracles with my hands and a prophet with a thief and a god with Eutychides. And because of thy unbridled tongue thou shalt be sold at once, and then say of me what thou wilt to thy purchasers.”

— Paton edition
