ἠγόρασας χαλκοῦν μιλιάριον, Ἡλιόδωρε,
τοῦ περὶ τὴν Θρᾴκην ψυχρότερον Βορέου.
μὴ φύσα, μὴ κάμνε: μάτην τὸν καπνὸν ἐγείρεις:
εἰς τὸ θέρος χαλκῆν βαύκαλιν ἠγόρασας.

— Paton edition

You bought a brass boiler, Heliodorus, colder than Thracian Boreas. Don’t blow the fire, don’t put yourself out ; it is in vain you stir up the smoke. What you bought was a brass wine-cooler for summer.
