Τίσ δ᾽ ἀγροιῶτίσ τοι θέλγει νόον,
οὐκ ἐπισταμένα τὰ βράκἐ ἔλκην
     ἐπί τῶν σφύρων; [transcription]

What rustic girl bewitches thee who knows not how to draw her dress about her ankles?

What rustic girl bewitches thee,
Who cannot even draw
Her garments neat as they should be,
Her ankles roundabout?

Athenaeus and others quote these lines.

Next: 68: Hero of Gyara, that swift runner, I taught.
