τὴν γραῦν ἐκκομίσας, φρονίμως πάνυ Μόσχος ἔγημε
παρθένον: ἡ φερνὴ δ᾽ ἔνδον ἔμεινεν ὅλη.
ἄξιον αἰνῆσαι Μόσχου φρένας, ὃς μόνος οἶδε
καὶ τίνα δεῖ κινεῖν καὶ τίνα κληρονομεῖν.

— Paton edition

After burying his old woman, Moschus very sensibly married a young girl, his first wife’s whole dowry remaining intact in his house. Moschus deserves to be praised for his good sense, in that he alone knows whom to sleep with and from whom to inherit.
