Marker on wood floor

Help!! My two year old "colored" on my hardwood floor with an indelible marker. Unfortunately, I was not home when this happened and it had dried by the time it was discovered (by a shrieking mother). I tried cleaning it with lemon oil, but I ended up with a very shiny marker mess. Is there any way to clean this shy of sanding the floor down and refinishing it?

Try mineral spirits and a rag. I believe that should do the trick, but try it out in a closet or some other rarely seen area.
