"In no way did Isidore obey the injunction; instead Ibycus' verse came against him: 'not at all to exchange honour among men by failing with the gods.'"[2]
Greek Original:
Μή τι: μηδαμῶς. οὔπω δὲ ἐπείθετο τῷ προστάγματι ὁ Ἰσίδωρος, ἀλλὰ τὸ τοῦ Ἰβύκου ἔπος αὐτὸν ἐπῄει, μή τι παρὰ θεοῖς ἀμπλακὼν τιμὰν πρὸς ἀνθρώπων ἀμείψῃ.
Notes:
[1] Same glossing in other lexica (see the references at Photius mu417 Theodoridis) and in a scholion on Homer, Iliad 4.42, where the headword phrase occurs (web address 1).
[2] Damascius, Life of Isidore fr. 253 Zintzen (150 Asmus), quoted already at alpha 1654 and iota 78. The Ibycus quotation is an approximation of his fr. 29 Page: "I fear that, failing with the gods, I will exchange honour among men" (quoted by Plato, Phaedrus 242C-D: web address 2).
