εἰ κύκνῳ δύναται κόρυδος παραπλήσιον ᾄδειν
τολμῷεν δ᾽ ἐρίσαι σκῶπες ἀηδονίσιν,
εἰ κόκκυξ τέττιγος ἐρεῖ λιγυρώτερος εἶναι,
ἶσα ποεῖν καὶ ἐγὼ Παλλαδίῳ δύναμαι.

— Paton edition

If a lark can sing like a swan and if owls dare
compete with nightingales, if a cuckoo asserts he is
more sweet-voiced than a cicada, then I too can
equal Palladius.
