οὐ πλεῖν, ἀλλ᾽ ἀντλεῖν ἡμᾶς Εἴκανδρος ὁ πρωρεὺς
εἰς τὴν εἰκόσορον φαίνεται ἐμβιβάσας:
οὐκ ὀλίγον γὰρ ἔνεστιν ὕδωρ ἔσω, ἀλλ᾽ ὁ Ποσειδῶν
ἐν ταύτῃ διαπλεῖν φαίνεται εἰς τὸ πέραν
νῦν πρῶτον ναῦς ὦπται ὑδρωπική, ἀλλά γε [ δείδω]
μὴ σορὸν οὖσαν ἴδῃς τὴν πάλαι εἰκόσορον.

— Paton edition

Icander the captain embarked us, it seems, on his
twenty-oarer, not for a sail, but to bale her out. For
the water in her is not little, but Poseidon seems
to sail over in her to the opposite shore. It is
the first time a ship with the dropsy has been seen.
But I, at least, fear lest you may see what was once
a long boat turn into our long home.

— Paton edition
