εἶχε Φίλων λέμβον Σωτήριχον ἀλλ᾽ ἐν ἐκείνῳ
σωθῆν᾽ οὐδὲ Ζεὺς αὐτὸς ἴσως δύναται.
οὔνομα γὰρ μόνον ἦν Σωτήριχος, οἱ δ᾽ ἐπιβάντες
ἔπλεον ἢ παρὰ γῆν, ἢ παρὰ Φερσεφόνην.

— Paton edition

Philo had a boat called the “Saviour,” but in it
perhaps not even Zeus himself can be saved. Its
name only was Saviour, but the passengers sailed
either close to land or to Persephone.
