Ἄκοσμα ταῦτα τοῦ Κομητᾶ πάντ’ ἔπη.
Κομητά, Θερσίτης μὲν ἦσθα. Πῶς δέ γε
Ἀχιλλέως πρόσωπον εἰσέδυς, τάλαν;
ἄπαγε ταῦτα τῆς ἀμούσου καρδίας
καὶ βάλλε γ’ ἐς κόρακας ἢ κύφων ὕπερ
τὰ κοπρίας γέμοντα σαθρίαν ἔπη.

Dübner (1888: 526) and Demoen (2019: 79) consider the poem as two epigrams. In their view, the first verse is a monostich followed by a subsequent poem of five verses.
