Ἑλλήνων ἀπέλυε πόλιν ποτέ, δέσποτα Καῖσαρ,
εἰσελθὼν ᾆσαι Ναύπλιον Ἡγέλοχος.
Ναύπλιος Ἑλλήνεσσιν ἀεὶ κακόν: ἢ μέγα κῦμα
νηυσὶν ἐπεμβάλλων,^ ἢ κιθαρῳδὸν ἔχων.

— Paton edition

Hegelochus, my Lord Caesar, once emptied a Greek city by appearing to sing the part of Nauplius. Nauplius is ever an evil to the Greeks, either sending a great wave on their ships or having a lyre-singer to play his part.
