Namque ego iamdudum uixi puer et solida arbos,

Ales et ex undis animal, tum lactea uirgo.

Chalc. comm. 197 (218 W): Empedocles [...] Pythagoram secutus ait eas (sc. animas) non naturam modo agrestem et feram sortiri, sed etiam formas uarias, cum ita dicit: "namque ego ... uirgo".

Cf. Emp. fr. 117 D: ἤδη γάρ ποτ’ ἐγὼ γενόμην κοῦρός τε κόρη τε / θάμνος τ’ οἰωνός τε καὶ ἔξαλος ἔλλοπος ἰχθύς.
