Texts


οὐ μόνος ἐμψύχων ἄπεχες χέρας, ἀλλὰ καὶ ἡμεῖς:
τίς γὰρ ὃς ἐμψύχων ἥψατο, Πυθαγόρη;
ἀλλ᾽ ὅταν ἑψηθῇ τι καὶ ὀπτηθῇ καὶ ἁλισθῇ
δὴ τότε καὶ ψυχὴν οὐκ ἔχον ἐσθίομεν.

— Paton edition

Ad astenerti da ciò ch'è animato, solo non fosti:
anche di noi, chi ne toccò, Pitagora?
Ma se un cibo si scotta, si cuoce, si sala, la cosa
che noi mangiamo un'anima non l'ha

οὐ μόνος ἐμψύχων ἄπεχες χέρας , ἀλλὰ καὶ ἡμεῖς :
τίς γὰρ ὃς ἐμψύχων ἥψατο , Πυθαγόρη ;
ἀλλ ὅταν ἑψηθῇ τι καὶ ὀπτηθῇ καὶ ἁλισθῇ
δὴ τότε καὶ ψυχὴν οὐκ ἔχον ἐσθίομεν .

Not , you alone , Pythagoras , abstained from living
things , but we do so likewise ; who ever touched
living things ? But when they are boiled and roasted
and salted , then they have no life in them and we
eat them .
