Texts

ἐνθάδε τὴν ἱερὴν κεφαλὴν σορὸς ἥδε κέκευθεν
Ἀετίου χρηστοῦ, ῥήτορος ἐκπρεπέος.
ἦλθεν δ᾽ εἰς Ἀίδαο δέμας, ψυχὴ δ᾽ ἐν Ὀλύμπῳ
τέρπεθ᾽ ἅμα Ζηνὶ καὶ ἄλλοισιν μακάρεσσι
ἀθάνατον δὲ οὔτε λόγος ποιεῖν οὔτε θεὸς δύναται.

— Paton edition

Here the sarcophagus holds the holy head of good Aetius, the distinguished orator. To the house of Hades went his body, but his soul in Olympus rejoices with Zeus and the other gods . . . . . , but neither eloquence nor God can make man immortal.
