τὴν γένεσιν λυποῦντα μαθὼν Κρόνον Ἡλιόδωρος,
νύκτωρ ἐκ ναοῦ χρύσεον ἦρε Κρόνον,

τίς πρῶτος κακοποιὸς ἐλήλυθε πείρασον, εἰπών,


δέσποτα, καὶ γνώσῃ τίς τίνος ἐστὶ Κρόνος:


ὃς δ᾽ ἄλλῳ κακὰ τεύχει, ἑῷ κακὸν ἥπατι τεύχει:

εὑρών μοι τιμήν, πᾶν ἀνάτελλ᾽ ὃ θέλεις.

— Paton edition

Heliodorus, hearing that Saturn troubles nativities, carried off the golden Saturn at night from the temple, saying : " Experience by fact, my Lord, which of us anticipated the other in working evil, and thou shalt know which of us is the Saturn of which. 'Who works evil for another, works it for his own heart.' Fetch me a good price and portend what thou wilt by thy rising.”
