χαῖρέ ποτ᾽ οὐκ εἰπόντα προσεῖπέ τις: ἀλλ᾽ ὁ περισσὸς
κάλλεϊ νῦν Δάμων οὐδὲ τὸ χαῖρε λέγει.
ἥξει τις τούτου χρόνος ἔκδικος: εἶτα δασυνθεὶς
ἄρξῃ χαῖρε λέγειν οὐκ ἀποκρινομένοις.

— Paton edition

One thus addressed a boy who did not say good-day: “And so Damon who excels in beauty, does not even say good-day now! A time will come that
will take vengeance for this. Then, grown all rough and hairy, you will give good-day first to those who do not give it you back."
