Texts

Οἴγνυμεν ἐξ ἑτέρης πόμα πίδακος, ὥστ᾽ ἀρύσασθαι
ξεῖνον μουσοπόλου γράμμα Λεωνίδεω:
δίστιχα γὰρ ψήφοισιν ἰσάζεται. ἀλλὰ σύ, Μῶμε,
ἔξιθι, κεἰς ἑτέρους ὀξὺν ὀδόντα βάλε.

— Paton edition

We open another fountain of drink to quaff from
it verses of a form hitherto strange to Leonidas.
The letters of the couplets give equal numbers. But
away with thee, Momus, and set thy sharp teeth in
others.
