Iophon, Fr. 2

“Even though I am only a woman, I know this too:
the more anyone seeks to understand the affairs of the gods
the less he knows.”

ἐπίσταμαι δὲ καὶ τάδ’ οὖσά περ γυνή,
ὡς μᾶλλον ὅστις εἰδέναι τὰ τῶν θεῶν
ζητεῖ, τοσούτῳ μᾶλλον ἧσσον εἴσεται

Iophon who? The son of a certain Sophocles. Yes, the Sophocles.
