οὐ λαλέει τὸ κάτοπτρον: ἐγὼ δέ σε † πάλιν ἐλέγξω
τὴν νοθοκαλλοσύνην φύκεϊ χριομένην.
τοῦτο καὶ ἡδυλύρης ποτὲ Πίνδαρος ἐλέγχων,
εἶπεν ἄριστον ὕδωρ, φύκεος ἐχθρότατον.

— Paton edition

The mirror does not speak, but I will expose you
who daub your counterfeit beauty with rouge. Sweet-
lyred Pindar, too, once censuring this, said that
"Water is best,” water the greatest enemy of
rouge.
