ἄνθρακα καὶ δάφνην παραβύεται ὁ στρατιώτης
Αὖλος, ἀποσφίγξας μήλινα λωμάτια.

φρίσσει καὶ τὸ μάτην ἴδιον ξίφος. ἢν δὲ ποτ᾽ εἴπῃς,

ἔρχοντ᾽, ἐξαπίνης ὕπτιος ἐκτέταται.

οὐδενὶ δ᾽ οὐ Πολέμωνι προσέρχεται, οὐ Στρατοκλείδῃ:
ἀλλὰ φίλῳ χρῆται πάντοτε Λυσιμάχῳ.

— Paton edition

Aulus the soldier stops his ears when he sees charcoal or laurel, wrapping his yellow duds tight round his head and he shudders at his own useless sword; and if you ever say, “They are coming,” he falls flat on his back. No Polemo or Stratoclides will he approach, but always has Lysimachus for a friend.
