τὴν κεφαλὴν βάπτων τις ἀπώλεσε τὰς τρίχας αὐτὰς,
καὶ δασὺς ὢν λίαν, ᾠὸν ἅπας γέγονεν.
τοῦτο βαφεὺς ἐπόησε, τὸ μηκέτι κουρέα τέμνειν
μήτε κόμην λευκὴν μήτε μελαινομένην.

— Paton edition

A man, by dyeing his head, destroyed the hair
itself, and his head from being very hairy became
all like an egg. The dyer attained this result, that
no barber now ever cuts his hair be it white or dark.
