μηκέτι κληρονόμους ὀνομάζετε φέγγος ὁρῶντας:
τοὺς δ᾽ ἀποθνῄσκοντας κληρονόμους λέγετε.
οἱ νῦν κληρονόμοι νέκυες μέγα κέρδος ἔχουσι,
τὴν ἀναχώρησιν τοῦ μογεροῦ βιότου.

— Paton edition

No longer call the living heirs, but call the dead
heirs. The dead are now heirs, and gain a great
inheritance, departure from this wretched life.
