Βάκχῳ καὶ Μούσῃσι μεμηλότα, τὸν Διοπείθους,
Κεκροπίδην ὑπ᾽ ἐμοί, ξεῖνε, Μένανδρον ἔχω,
ἐν πυρὶ τὴν ὀλίγην ὃς ἔχει κόνιν εἰ δὲ Μένανδρον
δίζηαι, δήεις ἐν Διὸς ἢ μακάρων.

— Paton edition

Menander of Athens, the son of Diopeithes, the friend of Bacchus and the Muses, rests beneath me, or at least the little dust he shed in the funeral fire. But if thou seekest Menander himself thou shalt find him in the abode of Zeus or in the Islands of the Blest.
