ἦν ἄρα καὶ κάνθωσι Τύχη χαλεπή τε καὶ ἐσθλή,
καὶ Κρόνος ὡρονομεῖ τετραπόδων γένεσιν.
ἐξότε γὰρ καὶ τοῦτον ὄνον χαλεπὸς χρόνος ἔσχεν,
ἐξ ἀλαβαρχείης γραμματικοῦ γέγονεν.

τλῆθι φέρειν λοιπόν, κανθήλιε: γραμματικοῖς γὰρ
οὐδὲ τέλος κριθᾖ, κρῖ δὲ μόνον λέγεται.

— Paton edition

So for mokes, too, there is sinister and good For-
tune, and Saturn rules the nativities of beasts also ;
for ever since evil time befel this donkey, it has
become a grammarian’s instead of being in the
alabarch’s palace. But bear it patiently hence-
forth, donkey; for grammarians crithe (barley) has
no end, but is called only cri.
