πῖνέ νυν ἐν Διὸς ὤν, ὦ Σώκρατες: ἦ σε γὰρ ὄντως
καὶ σοφὸν εἶπε θεὸς, καὶ θεὸς ἡ Σοφία.
πρὸς γὰρ Ἀθηναίων κώνειον ἁπλῶς σὺ ἐδέξω,
αὐτοὶ δ᾽ ἐξέπιον τοῦτο τεῷ στόματι.

— Paton edition

Drink now, O Socrates, in the house of Zeus.
Of a truth a god called thee wise and Wisdom is a
goddess. From the Athenians thou didst receive
simply hemlock, but they themselves drank it by
thy mouth.
