Ἀντίσπαστον ἐμοί τις ὄνον μακρόθυμον ἔδωκεν,
τῶν βασταζομένων ὅρμον ὁδοιπορίης,
υἱὸν τῆς βραδυτῆτος ὄνον, πόνον, ὄκνον, .ὄνειρον,
τῶν ἀνακαμπτόντων ὑστάτιον πρότερον.

— Paton edition

Someone gave me a long-suffering donkey that moves backwards as much as forward their journey’s haven to those who ride on it ; a donkey, the son of slowness, a labour, a delay, a dream , but first instead of last for those who are retiring.
