Ἀρκάδας οὐχ οὕτω Στυμφαλίδες, ὡς ἐμὲ κίχλαι
αἱ νέκυες ξηροῖς ἤκαχον ὀσταρίοις,
ἅρπυιαι, δραχμῆς ξηρὴ δεκάς. ὦ ἐλεειναὶ
λειμώνων ἐτύμως, ἔρρετε, νυκτερίδες.

— Paton edition

The birds of Stymphalus vexed not so the
Arcadians, as those dead thrashes vexed me with
their dry bones, very harpies, ten of them* a dry
drachma’s -worth. Out on you, wretched creatures,
true bats of the fields.
