οὕτω σοι πέψαι, Διονύσιε, ταῦτα γένοιτο
πάντα: νόμου δὲ χάριν, δός τι καὶ ὧδε φαγεῖν
κἀγὼ κέκλημαι, κἀμοὶ παρέθηκέ τι τούτων
γεύσασθαι Πόπλιος, κἀμὸν ἔπεστι μέρος:


εἰ μὴ λεπτὸν ἰδών με δοκεῖς κατακεῖσθαι ἄρωστον,
εἶθ᾽ οὕτως τηρεῖς, μή σε λαθών τι φάγω.

— Paton edition

So may you be able, Dionysius, to digest all these things you are eating, but for custom’s sake give us something to eat here too. I was invited also, and Publius served some of these things for me too to taste, and my portion too is on the board. Unless, seeing that I am thin, you think I was ill when I sat down to table, and so watch me thus in case I eat something unnoticed by you.
