Aristophanes, Frogs 185-187 (Charon speaking; tr. Jeffrey Henderson):
Who's for release from cares and troubles?
Who's for the Plain of Oblivion? For Ocnus' Twinings?
The Land of the Cerberians? The buzzards? Taenarum?

τίς εἰς ἀναπαύλας ἐκ κακῶν καὶ πραγμάτων;
τίς εἰς τὸ Λήθης πεδίον, ἢ 'ς Ὄκνου πλοκάς,
ἢ 'ς Κερβερίους, ἢ 'ς κόρακας, ἢ 'πὶ Ταίναρον;

186 Ὄκνου πλοκάς Aristarchus ap. Phot. 338.8 = Suda o 399: ὄνου πόκας codd., Ὀνουπόκας Radermacher
