τρηχεῖαν κατ᾽ ἐμεῦ, ψαφαρὴ κόνι, ῥάμνον ἑλίσσοις
πάντοθεν, ἢ σκολιῆς ἄγρια κῶλα βάτου,
ὡς ἐπ᾽ ἐμοὶ μηδ᾽ ὄρνις ἐν εἴαρι κοῦφον ἐρείδοι
ἴχνος, ἐρημάζω δ᾽ ἥσυχα κεκλιμένος.
ἦ γὰρ ὁ μισάνθρωπος, ὁ μηδ᾽ ἀστοῖσι φιληθεὶς
Τίμων οὐδ᾽ Ἀίδῃ γνήσιός εἰμι νέκυς.

— Paton edition

Dry earth, grow a prickly thorn to twine all around me, or the wild branches of a twisting bramble, that not even a bird in spring may rest its light foot on me, but that I may repose in peace and solitude. For I, the misantrhope, Timon, who was not even beloved by my own countrymen, am no genuine dead man even in Hades.
