πέντ᾽ ὀβολῶν πέπρακεν Ἀπολλοφάνης ὁ τραγῳδὸς
πέντε θεῶν σκευήν, Ἡρακλέους ῥόπαλον,
Τισιφόνης τὰ φόβητρα, Ποσειδῶνος τριόδοντα,
ὅπλον Ἀθηναίης, Ἀρτέμιδος φαρέτρην.


οἱ δὲ θεοὶ πὰρ Ζηνὶ καθήμενοι ἐξεδύθησαν
εἰς βραχὺ σιταρίου κέρμα καὶ οἰναρίου.

— Paton edition

Apollophanes the tragedian sold for five obols the stage property of five gods, the dub of Heracles, Tisiphone’s instruments of terror, the trident of Poseidon, the shield of Athena, and the quiver of Artemis. “ And the gods that sit beside Zeus ” were stripped to get a few coppers to buy a little bread and wine.
