ἰχθῦν ὁ γρυπὸς Σωσίπτολις οὐκ ἀγοράζει,
προῖκα δ᾽ ἔχει πολλὴν ἐξ ἁλὸς εὐβοσίην,
οὐ λίνον, οὐ κάλαμον προσάγων, τῇ ῥινὶ δὲ προσθεὶς
ἄγκιστρον, σύρει πάντα τὰ νηχόμενα.

— Paton edition

Hook-nosed Sosipolis does not buy fish, but gets plenty of good fare from the sea for nothing ; bringing no line and rod, but attaching a hook to his nose, he pulls out everything that swims.
