φημὶ πολυστιχίην ἐπιγράμματος οὐ κατὰ Μούσας
εἶναι. μὴ ζητεῖτ᾽ ἐν σταδίῳ δόλιχον:
πόλλ᾽ ἀνακυκλοῦται δολιχὸς δρόμος: ἐν σταδίῳ δὲ
ὀξὺς ἐλαυνόμενος πνεύματός ἐστι τόνος.

— Paton edition

An epigram of many lines does not, I say, conform
to the Muses' law. Seek not the long course in the
short stadion. The long race has many rounds, but
in the stadion sharp and short is the strain on the
wind.
