Simonides, elegaic fragment 13 (tr. David A. Campbell):
                                    Time is sharp-toothed,
and he grinds up all things, even the mightiest.

              ὅ τοι Χρόνος ὀξὺς ὀδόντας,
καὶ πάντα ψήχει καὶ τὰ βιαιότατα.

2 Pierson: ψύχει, ψύχη codd. | πάντα καταψήχει Bergk | κὰπ πάντα ψήχει West
