τὸ στάδιον Περικλῆς εἴτ᾽ ἔδραμεν, εἴτ᾽ ἐκάθητο,
οὐδεὶς οἶδεν ὅλως: δαιμόνιος βραδυτής.
ὁ ψόφος ἦν ὕσπληγος ἐν οὔασι, καὶ στεφανοῦτο
ἄλλος, καὶ Περικλῆς δάκτυλον οὐ προέβη.

— Paton edition

No one knows if Pericles ran or sat in the stadion
race. Marvellous slowness ! “ The noise of the
barrier’s fall was in our ears ” and another was receiving
the crown and Pericles had not advanced an inch.
