Reading at Random in Classical Literature
Preserved, like the fragment from two days ago, in Stobaeus’ Anthology.
κλέπτων δ’ ὅταν τις ἐμφανῶς ἐφευρεθῇ,
σιγᾶν ἀνάγκη, κἂν λάλον φορῇ στόμα.
When someone has been caught red-handed in theft, they need to keep silent, even if they bear a talkative mouth.
