Ὦ Πύρρων μέγα θαῦμα πεφασμένον ὡς πλέον ὀυδέν,
τῶν ἄλλων ἕτερον χρῆμά τι θαμβαλέον.
εἰ μὲν ὑπερφιάλως κατ’ ἐναντίον ἐλθέμεν ἔτλης,
συμπάντων γε σοφῶν φεῦ ὅσον ἦσθα τάλας˙
εἰ δὲ κὲν ἰδμοσύνης τῆς ἀνδρομέης κατεγνωκώς,
τὰ πρώτιστα φέρεις ὧν σοφίης κατέγνως.

Quo nulla in toto res magis orbe fuit.
Quod si prater fas cunctis sapientibus unus
Ausus es obniti, quam miser unus eras!
Vana hominum at si ridebatur opinio, nempe
Philosophis potior quos reprehendis eras.
