Ναυηγόν με δέδορκας. ὃν οἰκτείρασα θάλασσα
γυμνῶσαι πυμάτου φάρεος ᾐδέσατο,
ἄνθρωπος παλάμῃσιν ἀταρβήτοις μ᾽ ἀπέδυσε,
τόσσον ἄγος τόσσου κέρδεος ἀράμενος.

κεῖνο καὶ ἐνδύσαιτο, καὶ εἰς Ἀίδαο φέροιτο,
καί μιν ἴδοι Μίνως τοὐμὸν ἔχοντα ῥάκος.

— Paton edition

I whom you look upon am a shipwrecked man.
The sea pitied me, and was ashamed to bare me
of my last adventure. It was a man who with fearless
hands stripped me, burdening himself with so heavy
a crime for so light a gain. Let him put it on and
take it with him to Hades, and let Minos see him
wearing my old coat.
