"Nothing bad, but just what Killikon also [did]". This man betrayed Samos. [It is] as if he said, 'I am not doing anything bad, but [only] robbing temples'. For Killikon had been much talked of for wickedness, he who betrayed Miletos to the Prienians. When certain people often asked him what he was going to do, he used to say, 'everything good'. And there is a proverb: 'everything good, as Killikon said'. Later however he went out to a certain Theagenes to buy meat; and that man bade him show from which part he wanted him to cut. When [Killikon] stretched out his hand, [Theagenes] cut it off and said: 'you will not betray any other city with this hand'.
Greek Original:
Κιλλικών: οὐδὲν πονηρόν, ἀλλ' ὅπερ καὶ Κιλλικών. οὗτος παρέδωκε τὴν Σάμον. ὡσεὶ εἶπεν: οὐδὲν κακὸν ποιῶ, ἀλλ' ἱεροσυλῶ. ἐπὶ πονηρίᾳ γὰρ ἐτεθρύλλητο ὁ Κιλλικών, ὃς προὔδωκε Μίλητον Πριηνεῦσι. πυνθανομένων δὲ πολλάκις αὐτοῦ τίνων, τί μέλλει ποιεῖν, ἔλεγε, πάντα ἀγαθά. καὶ ἔστι παροιμία: πάντα ἀγαθά, ὡς ἔφη Κιλλι- κών. ὕστερον μέντοι παρὰ Θεαγένους τινὸς εἰσῆλθεν ὠνησόμενος κρέα: κἀκεῖνος ὑποδεῖξαι ἐκέλευσε, πόθεν κόψαι θέλει: προτείναντος δὲ τὴν χεῖρα, ἀπέκοψε καὶ εἶπε: ταύτῃ τῇ χειρὶ οὐ προδώσεις πόλιν ἑτέραν.
