Texts


μὴ σύγε θνητὸς ἐὼν ὡς ἀθάνατός τι λογίζου:
οὐδὲν γὰρ βιότου πιστὸν ἐφημερίοις,
εἰ καὶ τόνδε Κάσανδρον ἔχει σορὸς ἥδε θανόντα,
ἄνθρωπον φύσεως ἄξιον ἀθανάτου.

— Paton edition

You do not, being mortal, reckon on anything as if you were immortal, for nothing in life is certain for men, the children of a day. See how this sarcophagus holds Casandros dead, a man worthy of an immortal nature.
