ῥῶ καὶ Λάμβδα μόνον κόρακας κολάκων διορίζει:
λοιπὸν ταὐτὸ κόραξ βωμολόχος τε κόλαξ.
τοὔνεκά μοι, βέλτιστε, τόδε ζῷον πεφύλαξο,
εἰδὼς καὶ ζώντων τοὺς κόλακας κόρακας.

— Paton edition

Corakes (crows) and colakes (flatterers) are only distinguished by Rho and Lambda. Therefore a crow and a lick-spittle flatterer are the same thing. So, my good sir, beware of this beast, knowing that flatterers are crows that pick the living too.
