ἐπεὶ δὲ σὺ καὶ τὸ προβληθέν σοι ἀποπροσπεποίησαι περὶ τῆς χρόας τοῦ Καλυδωνίου συός, εἴ τις αὐτὸν ἱστορεῖ λευκὸν τὴν χρόαν γεγονότα, ἐροῦμεν ἡμεῖς τὸν εἰπόντα, τὸ δὲ μαρτύριον ἀνίχνευσον σύ· πάλαι γὰρ τυγχάνω ἀνεγνωκὼς τοὺς Κλεομένους τοῦ Ῥηγίνου διθυράμβους, ὧν ἐν τῷ ἐπιγραφομένῳ Μελεάγρῳ τοῦτο ἱστόρηται.
