ἐκ τῶν Ἑσπερίδων τῶν τοῦ Διὸς ἦρε Μενίσκος,
ὡς τὸ πρὶν Ἡρακλέης, χρύσεα μῆλα τρία.
καὶ τί γάρ; ὡς ἑάλω, γέγονεν μέγα πᾶσι θέαμα,
ὡς τὸ πρὶν Ἡρακλέης ζῶν κατακαιόμενος.

— Paton edition

From the Hesperides’ Garden of Zeus, Meniscus, as Heracles did formerly, carried off three golden apples. Well, what happened ? When he was caught he became a famous spectacle for all, burning alive, like Heracles of old.
