γραμματικῶν περίεργα γένη, ῥιζωρύχα μούσης
ἀλλοτρίης, ἀτυχεῖς σῆτες ἀκανθοβάται,

τῶν μεγάλων κηλῖδες, ἐπ᾽ Ἠρίννῃ δὲ κομῶντες,
πικροὶ καὶ ξηροὶ Καλλιμάχου πρόκυνες,

ποιητῶν λῶβαι, παισὶ σκότος ἀρχομένοισιν,
ἔρροιτ᾽, εὐφώνων λαθροδάκναι κόριες.

— Paton edition

Idly curious race of grammarians, ye who dig up by the roots the poetry of others: unhappy book-proud of your Erinna, bitter and dry dogs set on by Callimachus, bane of poets, darkness to little beginners, away with you, bugs that secretly bite the eloquent.
