Codex Palatinus 23 p. 550


πώγων, καὶ λάσιαι μηρῶν τρίχες, ὡς ταχὺ πάντα
ὁ χρόνος ἀλλάσσει: Κόννιχε, τοῦτ᾽ ἐγένου.
οὐκ ἔλεγον; μὴ πάντα βαρὺς θέλε μηδὲ βάναυσος
εἶναι: καὶ κάλλους εἰσί τινες Νεμέσεις.
ἦλθες ἔσω μάνδρης, ὑπερήφανε: νῦν ὅτι βούλει
οἴδαμεν ἀλλ᾽ ἐξῆν καὶ τότ᾽ ἔχειν σε φρένας.

— Paton edition

Beard and rough hair on the thighs, how quickly time changes all ! Connichus, is this what you have become ? Did I not say, “ Be not in all things harsh and discourteous ; Beauty has its own Avenging Deities ” ? So you have come into the pen, proud youth ; we know that you wish for it now ; but then, too, you might have had sense.
