Of his great achievements this story once told:
"While staying in Rhodes, far over the sea,
No athlete, in jumping could ever beat me.
I once took a jump, that each man trying hard
For the prize, could not make within a good yard,
'Tis a fact as true as you are standing there,
Were we in Rhodes ten men to it would swear."
"Why go to Rhodes to prove your story true?"
Said one: "Try here and we'll see what you do."
