οὔτε τάχιον ἐμοῦ τις ἐν ἀντιπάλοισιν ἔπιπτεν,
οὔτε βράδιον ὅλως ἔδραμε τὸ στάδιον
δίσκῳ μὲν γὰρ ὅλως οὐδ᾽ ἤγγισα, τοὺς δὲ πόδας μου
ἐξᾶραι πηδῶν ἴσχυον οὐδέποτε:

κυλλὸς δ᾽ ἠκόντιζεν ἀμείνονα: πέντε δ᾽ ἀπ᾽ ἄθλων
πρῶτος ἐκηρύχθην πεντετριαζόμενος,

— Paton edition

None among the competitors was thrown quicker
than myself and none ran the race slower. With the
quoit I never came near the rest, I never was able to
lift my legs for a jump and a cripple could throw the
javelin better than I. I am the first who out of the
five events was proclaimed beaten in all five.
