εἰκόνα σοί, βασιλεῦ κοσμοφθόρε, τήνδε σιδήρου
ἄνθεσαν, ὡς χαλκοῦ πολλὸν ἀτιμοτέρην,
ἀντὶ φόνου, πενίης τ᾽ ὀλοῆς, λιμοῦ τε, καὶ ὀργῆς,
οἷς πάντα φθείρεις ἐκ φιλοχρημοσύνης.

— Paton edition

King, destroyer of the world, they set up this iron statue of thee as being much less precious than bronze, in return for the bloodshed, the fatal poverty and famine and wrath, by which thou destroyest all things owing to thy avarice.
