ἄλκιμος ἀγρίφαν κενοδοντίδα, καὶ φιλοδούπου
φάρσος ἄμας, στελεοῦ χῆρον ἐλαϊνέου,
ἀρθροπέδαν † στεῖμόν τε, καὶ ὠλεσίβωλον ἀρούρης
σφῦραν, καὶ δαπέδων μουνορυχὰν ὄρυγα,

καὶ κτένας ἑλκητῆρας, ἀνὰ προπύλαιον Ἀθάνας
θήκατο, καὶ ῥαπτὰς γειοφόρους σκαφίδας,
θησαυρῶν ὅτ᾽ ἔκυρσεν, ἐπεὶ τάχ᾽ ἂν ἁ πολυκαμπὴς
ἰξὺς κεἰς Ἀίδαν ᾤχετο κυφαλέα.

— Paton edition

Alcimus hung up in Athene’s porch, when he found a treasure (for otherwise his often-bent back would perhaps have gone down curved to Hades), his toothless rake, a piece of his noisy hoe wanting its olive-wood handle, his . . ., his mallet that destroys the clods, his one-pronged pickaxe, his rake, and his sewn baskets for carrying earth.
