ἀτρέμα τὸν τύμβον παραμείβετε, μὴ τὸν ἐν ὕπνῳ
πικρὸν ἐγείρητε σφῆκ᾽ ἀναπαυόμενον.
ἄρτι γὰρ Ἱππώνακτος ὁ καὶ τοκεῶνε βαΰξας
ἄρτι κεκοίμηται θυμὸς ἐν ἡσυχίῃ.

ἀλλὰ προμηθήσασθε: τὰ γὰρ πεπυρωμένα κείνου
ῥήματα πημαίνειν οἶδε καὶ εἰν Ἀίδῃ.

— Paton edition

Go quietly by the tomb, lest ye awake the malignant wasp that lies asleep ; for only just has it been laid to rest, the spite of Hipponax that snarled even at his parents. Have a care then ; for his verses, red from the fire, have power to hurt even in Hades.
