Da tradução mais literal possível

ἴδμεν ψεύδεα πολλὰ λέγειν ἐτύμοισιν ὁμοι̂α,
ἴδμεν δ’, εὐ̂τ’ ἐθέλωμεν, ἀληθέα γηρύσασθαι.

Idmen pseudea polla legein etymoisin homoia,
Idmen d’ eut’ ethelomen alethea mythaesasthai.

«Penso que falsidades várias elegemos/lemos/legislamos [LOGOS] homólogas a étimos/origens,
Penso que, quando desejamos, o não-esquecimento invocamos/evocamos [MYTHOS].»

– Hesíodo, “Teogonia”, 27-28.
