ὁ τὸν πολυστένακτον ἀνθρώπων βίον
γέλωτι κεράσας Νικαεὺς Φιλιστίων
ἐνταῦθα κεῖμαι, λείψανον παντὸς βίου,
πολλάκις ἀποθανών, ὧδε δ᾽ οὐδεπώποτε.

— Paton edition

I, Philistion of Nicaea, who tempered with
laughter the miserable life of men, lie here, the
remains of all life ; I often died, but never yet just
in this way.
