οὐκ ἔστιν θυγατρὸς μεῖζον βάρος: εἰ δὲ δοκεῖ σοι,
Εὐκτήμων, εἶναι κοῦφον, ἄκουσον ἐμοῦ.
ἔστιν σοὶ κήλη, κἀμοὶ θυγάτηρ: λάβε ταύτην,
καὶ δός μοι κήλας ἀντὶ μιᾶς ἑκατόν.

— Paton edition

There is no greater burden than a daughter, and
if, Euctemon, you think it is a light one, listen to
me. You have a hydrocele and I have a daughter;
take her and give me a hundred hydroceles instead
of one.

— R. Aubreton
