κἂν μέχρις Ἡρακλέους στηλῶν ἔλθῃς παρορίζων,
γῆς μέρος ἀνθρώποις πᾶσιν ἴσον σε μένει,
κείσῃ δ᾽ Ἴρῳ ὅμοιος, ἔχων ὀβολοῦ πλέον οὐδὲν,
εἰς τὴν οὐκέτι σὴν γῆν ἀναλυόμενος.

— Paton edition

Even if thou removest thy neighbour’s boundaries till thou readiest the Pillars of Heracles, a portion of earth equal to that of all men awaits thee, and thou shalt lie like Irus, with no more than an obol on thee, dissolving into the earth that is no more thine.
