ὁ σκήπων καὶ ταῦτα τὰ βλαυτία, πότνια Κύπρι,
ἄγκειται κυνικοῦ σκῦλ᾽ ἀπὸ Σωχάρεος,
ὄλπη τε ῥυπόεσσα, πολυτρήτοιό τε πήρας
λείψανον, ἀρχαίης πληθόμενον σοφίης:

σοὶ δὲ Ῥόδων ὁ καλός, τὸν πάνσοφον ἡνίκα πρέσβυν
ἤγρευσεν, στεπτοῖς θήκατ᾽ ἐπὶ προθύροις,

— Paton edition

The staff and these slippers hang here, Cypris, the spoils won from Sochares the cynic; his grimy oil-flask, too, and the remains of his wallet all in holes, stuffed full of ancient wisdom. They were dedicated here, on thy begarlanded porch, by comely Rhodon, when he caught the all-wise greybeard.
