τέκνον ἀναιδείης, ἀμαθέστατε, θρέμμα Μορίης,
εἰπέ, τί βρενθύῃ μηδὲν ἐπιστάμενος;

ἐν μὲν γραμματικοῖς ὁ Πλατωνικός: ἂν δὲ Πλάτωνος
δόγματά τις ζητῇ, γραμματικὸς σὺ πάλιν.

ἐξ ἑτέρου ῾φεύγεις ἐπὶ θάτερον οὔτε δὲ τέχνην
οἶσθα γραμματικήν, οὔτε Πλατωνικὸς εἶ.

— Paton edition

Child of shamelessness, most ignorant of men, nursling of folly, tell why dost thou hold thy head high, knowing nothing? Among the grammarians thou art the Platonist, and if anyone enquire as to Plato’s doctrines thou art again a grammarian. From one thing thou takest refuge in another, and thou neither knowest the Art of Grammar nor art thou a Platonist.
