ἀγρὸς Ἀχαιμενίδου γενόμην ποτέ, νῦν δὲ Μενίππου:
καὶ πάλιν ἐξ ἑτέρου βήσομαι εἰς ἕτερον.
καὶ γὰρ ἐκεῖνος ἔχειν μὲ ποτ᾽ ᾤετο, καὶ πάλιν οὗτος
οἴεται: εἰμὶ δ᾽ ὅλως οὐδενός, ἀλλὰ Τύχης.

— Paton edition

I was once the field of Achaemenides and am now Menippus', and I shall continue to pass from one man to another. For Achaemenides once thought he possessed me, and Menippus again thinks he does; but I belong to no man, only to Fortune.
