A poor painter


Poor Eutychos, not a good painter and something seems amiss with his love life!

Εἴκοσι γεννήσας ὁ ζωγράφος Εὔτυχος υἱοὺς οὐδ’ ἀπὸ τῶν τέκνων οὐδὲν ὅμοιον ἔχει.

The painter Eutychos had twenty sons but even among his children he failed to get a likeness.

Lucilius

From Select epigrams from the Greek Anthology J.W.Mackail XVI
