Θηλυφανὲς παράδοξον ἐθαυμάσαμεν πάθος ἄλλο:
ἔκλαιεν κλέπτων, κλεπτομένους ἐλεῶν,
ὃς κλέπτων ἥγνευε, καὶ ἁγνεύων ἀπεσύλα,
μηδὲν ἔχων καθαρόν, μηδὲ τὸ σῶμα ῥύπου.

— Paton edition

We marvelled at another strange, effeminate characteristic. He wept while stealing, pitying those he was robbing ; he who, while robbing, observed ceremonial purity, and while thus affecting purity went on despoiling, a man with nothing clean about him, not even his person free of dirt.
