Οὐ νέμεσις ἀπαφίσκειν οὐδὲ θεοῖς βασιλῆας
οἷσι κακορραφίη τε μέμηλε καὶ ἔχθεα λυγρά,
οἷα καὶ Ἀτρείωνι ἀνάρσια ἔργα τέτυκται
εἰς Ἀχιλῆα περίφρονα ὄρχαμον ἠγεμονήων.
Τῷ ῥα καὶ ἐξαπάτηται καὶ πολὺν ὤλεσε λαόν·
οὕτως ἡ πλεονεξίη ἔπλετο πᾶσι κακίστη.

Quare quidem et deceptus est et multum perdidit populum.
Sic cupiditas fuit omnibus pessima.
