Μαντεύεται δίκαιος ὤν τις καὶ πένης
εἰ μεταβαλὼν πλούτου τυχεῖν δυνήσεται.
ἔχρησεν ὁ θεὸς συνακολουθεῖν ᾧπερ ἂν
πρώτῳ περιτύχῃ. Πλοῦτος ὀπτάνεται τυφλός.
γνοὺς δ᾽ αὐτόν, ἤγαγ᾽ οἴκαδ᾽, ἄλλους δημότας
καλέσας μετασχεῖν· εἶθ᾽ ὑγιᾶσαι τὰς κόρας
ἔσπευδον· εἰς Ἀσληπιοῦ δ᾽ ἀπήγαγον.
ἡ δ᾽ <ἀναφανεῖς> ἄφνω Πενία διεκώλυεν.
ὅμως ἀναβλέψαντος αὐτοῦ τῶν κακῶν
οὐδεὶς ἐπλούτει, τῶν δ᾽ ἀγαθῶν ἦν τἀγαθά.
