[Meaning a] hymn to Dionysos.[1] "They sing the Iacchos, like Diagoras."[2] They say that this man was called "the atheist."[3] There was also a second [Diagoras], who was ridiculed for his size. Hermippos in Fates [writes]: "for he was larger [than] he is now, and indeed it seems to me, if one adds [more] of the day, he will be bigger than Diagoras the son of Terthreus ["Quibbler"]."[4]
Greek Original:
Ἴακχος: ὕμνος εἰς Διόνυσον. ᾄδουσι τὸν Ἴακχον, ὥσπερ Διαγόρας. τοῦτόν φασιν Ἄθεον κεκλῆσθαι. γέγονε δὲ καὶ ἕτερος, κωμῳδούμενος ἐπὶ μεγέθει. Ἕρμιππος ἐν Μοίραις: μείζων γὰρ ἦν. νῦν δ' ἔστι καὶ δοκεῖ δή μοι, ἐάν τις ἐπιδιδῷ τῆς ἡμέρας, μείζων ἔσται Διαγόρου τοῦ Τερθρέως.
