Ζηνογένους οἶκος κατεκαίετο, πολλὰ δ᾽ ἐμόχθει
ἐκ θυρίδος ζητῶν αὑτὸν ὑπεκχαλάσαι:
ἰκρία συμπήξας οὐκ ἔφθανεν ὀψὲ δ᾽ ἐπιγνούς,
τὴν ῥῖν᾽ Ἀντιμάχου κλίμακα θεὶς ἔφυγεν.

— Paton edition

Zenogenes’ house was on fire, and he was toiling sore in his efforts to let himself down from a window. By fixing planks together he could not reach far enough, but at length, when it struck him, he set Antimachus’ nose as a ladder and escaped.
