ἐζήτουν πινάκων πόθεν οὔνομα τοῦτο καλέσσω,
καὶ παρὰ σοὶ κληθείς, εὗρον ὅθεν λέγεται.
πείνης γὰρ μεγάλης μεγάλους πίνακας παρέθηκας,
ὄργανα τοῦ λιμοῦ πειναλέους πίνακας.

— Paton edition

I sought whence I should say the word pinakes (dishes) was derived, and on being invited by you I found out why they are so called. For you placed before me great pinakes of great peina (hunger), famished dishes, instruments of famine.
