Proper names of poor men.[1] Asclepius would [sc. be able to] heal Pauson and Iros and any other of the hopeless cases;[2] for someone had an eye disease; then standing by, this man says: "soften with vinegar the lard of a boar, and then anoint yourself with it."[3] But he consults with his regular doctor. He tried to state the causes: for the dissembler said that the swelling flowed out because of the pungency [sc. of the vinegar], whereas the anointing increased the softness.[4]
Greek Original:

[1] There is nothing in the source (n.3 below) to indicate that P and I were poor. A guess? Conflation with pi 824? (Iros the obnoxious beggar in Homer, Odyssey 18, can hardly be relevant.)
[2] cf. alpha 4173.
[3] Taken by some to be (with adjustment of the final phrase) an anapaestic tetrameter deriving from comedy: Comica adespota fr. 924 Kassel-Austin.
[4] Aelian fr. 103 Domingo-Forasté (100 Hercher); associated with phi 505 (etc.).
