φεύγων τὴν ὑπόνοιαν Ἀπολλοφάνης ἐγάμησεν,
καὶ διὰ τῆς ἀγορᾶς νυμφίος ἦλθε μέσης,

αὔριον εὐθύ, λέγων, ἕξω τέκνον. εἶτα προῆλθεν
αὔριον, ἀντὶ τέκνου τὴν ὑπόνοιαν ἔχων.

— Paton edition

To avoid suspicion, Apollophanes married and walked as a bridegroom through the middle of the market, saying, “ To-morrow at once I will have a child,” Then when to-morrow came he appeared carrying the suspicion instead of a child.
