τὸν φιλόπαιδα Κράτιππον ἀκούσατε: θαῦμα γὰρ ὑμῖν
καινὸν ἀπαγγέλλω: πλὴν μεγάλαι Νεμέσεις.
τὸν φιλόπαιδα Κράτιππον ἀνεύρομεν ἄλλο γένος τι
τῶν ἑτεροζήλων. ἤλπισα τοῦτ᾽ ἂν ἐγώ;

ἤλπισα τοῦτο, Κράτιππε: μανήσομαι εἰ, λύκος εἶναι
πᾶσι λέγων, ἐφάνης ἐξαπίνης ἔριφος;

— Paton edition

You have heard of Cratippus as a lover of boys. It is a great marvel I have to tell you, but great goddesses are the Avengers. We discovered that Cratippus, the lover of boys, belongs now to another variety of those persons whose tastes lie in an inverse direction. Would I ever have expected this ? I expected it, Cratippus. Shall I go mad because, while you told everyone you were a wolf, you suddenly turned out to be a kid?
