οὕτως ἔστ᾽ ἀργὸς Πανταίνετος, ὥστε πυρέξας
μηκέτ᾽ ἀναστῆναι παντὸς ἐδεῖτο θεοῦ.
καὶ νῦν οὐκ ἐθέλων μὲν ἐγείρεται, ἐν δ᾽ οἱ αὐτῷ
κωφὰ θεῶν ἀδίκων οὔατα μεμφόμενος.

— Paton edition

Pantaenétos est si paresseux que, pris par la fièvre, il n'y avait dieu qu'il ne suppliât pour ne plus se lever. Et maintenant, malgré lui, il se lève. Il ne lui reste plus qu'une solution: reprocher à ces dieux injustes de lui faire sourde oreille.

οὕτως ἔστ ἀργὸς Πανταίνετος , ὥστε πυρέξας
μηκέτ ἀναστῆναι παντὸς ἐδεῖτο θεοῦ .
καὶ νῦν οὐκ ἐθέλων μὲν ἐγείρεται , ἐν δ οἱ αὐτῷ
κωφὰ θεῶν ἀδίκων οὔατα μεμφόμενος .

Pantaenetus is so lazy that when he fell sick of a fever he prayed to every god never to get up again . And now he leaves his bed unwillingly , and in his heart blames the deaf ears of the unjust gods .
