Δαμαγόραν καὶ λοιμὸν ἰσόψηφόν τις ἀκούσας
ἔστης1᾽ ἀμφοτέρων τὸν τρόπον ἐκ κανόνος:
εἰς τό μέρος δὲ καθείλκετ᾽ ἀνελκυσθὲν τὸ τάλαντον
Δαμαγόρου, λοιμὸν δ᾽ εὗρεν ἐλαφρότερον.

— Paton edition

Someone, hearing that " Damagoras ” and "pesti-
lence ” were numerical equivalents, weighed the
character of both from the beam of the balance.
But the scale, when raised, was pulled down on
Damagoras’ side, and he found pestilence lighter.
