Θεσσαλὸν ἵππον ἔχεις, Ἐρασίστρατε, ἀλλὰ σαλεῦσαι
οὐ δύνατ᾽ αὐτὸν ὅλης φάρμακα Θεσσαλίης,
ὄντως δούριον ἵππον, ὃν εἰ Φρύγες εἷλκον ἅπαντες
σὺν Δαναοῖς, Σκαιὰς οὐκ ἂν ἐσῆλθε πύλας:

ὃν στήσας ἀνάθημα θεοῦ τινος, εἰ προσέχεις μοι,
τὰς κριθὰς ποίει τοῖς τεκνίοις πτισάνην.

— Paton edition

You have a Thessalian horse, Erasistratus, but all the magic of Thessaly cannot make him stir ; truly a wooden horse which would never have got through the Scaean gates, if all the Trojans and Greeks together had dragged it. If you take my advice, put him up as a votive statue to some god and make his barley into gruel for your children.
