Ananius, fragment 3, tr. M.L. West, Greek Lyric Poetry
(Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1999), p. 115:
If someone locked a lot of gold up in a house
with two or three people, and a small amount of figs,
he'd soon find out how much more figs are worth than gold.
The Greek, from Iambi et Elegi Graeci ante Alexandrum Cantati
, ed. M.L. West, Vol. II (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1992), p. 35:
εἴ τις καθείρξαι χρυσὸν ἐν δόμοις πολὺν
καὶ σῦκα βαιὰ καὶ δύ᾽ ἢ τρεῖς ἀνθρώπους,
γνοίη χ᾽ ὅσωι τὰ σῦκα τοῦ χρυσοῦ κρέσσω.
