Diphilus, fragment 84 Kassel and Austin (my translation):
A grey-haired craftsman is time, stranger;
he likes to remake everyone for the worse.

πολιὸς τεχνίτης ἐστὶν ὁ χρόνος, ὦ ξένε·
χαίρει μεταπλάττων πάντας ἐπὶ τὰ χείρονα.

1 πολιὸς codd.: σκολιὸς Grotius: σκαιὸς Meineke: φαῦλος Hirschig: ποῖος Herwerden: ἄτοπος Haupt: δόλιος Canter: ἄπονος Edmonds
