οὐδενὸς ἐνθάδε νῦν τεθνηκότος, ὦ παροδῖτα,
Μάρκος ὁ ποιητὴς ᾠκοδόμηκε τάφον,
καὶ γράψας ἐπίγραμμα μονόστιχον, ὧδ᾽ ἐχάραξε:

κλαύσατε δωδεκέτη Μάξιμον ἐξ Ἐφέσου.

οὐδὲ γὰρ εἶδον ἐγώ τινα Μάξιμον εἰς δ᾽ ἐπίδειξιν
ποιητοῦ κλαίειν τοῖς παριοῦσι λέγω.

— Paton edition

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.
