Translation:
"And I have nothing that I can say worthily about him, whether the name I apply to them is the Magnesians' evils,[1] or the Termerian [evil],[2] or simply the entirety of tragedy togther with satyr[-play] and comedy and mime; so all shamefulness, all insanity, has been contrived by the man, to excess, in these [genres]."[3]
Greek Original:
Μαγνητῶν κακά: καὶ οὔτε τί φῶ περὶ αὐτοῦ ἀξίως ἔχω, κἂν τὰ Μαγνητῶν κακά, κἂν τὸ Τερμέριον, κἂν πᾶσαν ἁπλῶς αὐτῶν ἐπιφθέγξωμαι τὴν τραγῳδίαν μετὰ τοῦ σατύρου καὶ τῆς κωμῳδίας καὶ τοῦ μίμου, οὕτω πᾶσα μὲν αἰσχρότης, πᾶσα δὲ ἀπόνοια πρὸς ὑπερβολὴν ἐπ' ἐκείνοις τῷ ἀνδρὶ πεφιλοτέχνηται.
