There is no DROP METHOD statement that you can use to drop a method body.

Instead, what you must do to drop a method is use the DROP METHOD or DROP SPECIFIC METHOD option of the ALTER TYPE statement (see ALTER TYPE) to drop the method signature from its type definition. This action also drops the external routine for the specified method.

You can also use the REPLACE METHOD statement (see REPLACE METHOD) to replace a method body.
