πήρην, κάδέψητον ἀπεσκληρυμμένον αἰγὸς
στέρφος, καὶ βάκτρον τοῦτὸ γ᾽ ὁδοιπορικόν,
κὤλπαν ἀστλέγγιστον, ἀχάλκωτόν τε κυνοῦχον,
καὶ πῖλον κεφαλᾶς οὐχ ὁσίας σκέπανον

ταῦτα καταφθιμένοιο μυρικίνεον περὶ θάμνον
σκῦλ᾽ ἀπὸ Σωχάρεος Λιμὸς ἀνεκρέμασεν,

— Paton edition

A wallet, a hard untanned goat-skin, this walking-stick, an oil-flask never scraped clean, a dog-skin purse without a copper in it, and the hat, the covering of his impious head, these are the spoils of Sochares that Famine hung on a tamarisk bush when he died.
