Ἀστεμφῆ ποδάγρην, καὶ δούνακας ἀνδικτῆρας,
καὶ λίνα, καὶ γυρὸν τοῦτο λαγωοβόλον,
ἰοδόκην, καὶ τοῦτον ἐπ᾽ ὄρτυγι τετρανθέντα
αὐλὸν, καὶ πλωτῶν εὐπλεκὲς ἀμφίβολον,

Ἑρμείῃ Σώσιππος, ἐπεὶ παρενήξατο τὸ πλεῦν
ἥβης, ἐκ γήρως δ᾽ ἀδρανίῃ δέδεται.

— Paton edition

Sosippus gives to Hermes, now that he has out-swum the greater part of his strength and the feebleness of old age fetters him, his securely fixed trap, his cane springes, his nets, this curved bare-club, his quiver, this quail-call, and the well-woven net for throwing over wild fowl.
