Ἔχεις ἀληθὲς δρᾶμα κοὐ πεπλασμένον
πεφυρμένον τε μυθικῶν λήρων κόπρῳ,
ὁ φιλομαθὴς εὐσεβοφρόνων λόγων.
Εἰ γοῦν θέλεις σὺ καὶ Λυκόφρονος τρόπῳ
γλυκόφρονος νῦν ὡς θέμις ἐγνωσμένου,
λέξω τὰ πολλὰ νητρεκῶς ὧν μ’ ἱστορεῖς.

Translation(s) Here is a truthful play, neither fictitious nor filled with the dung of foolish mythology, for you who are willing to learn pious subjects. So, if you want, I will tell truly the many things you are asking me about, even in the manner of Lycophron, now rightly considered a refined writer.
