It Matters Not to Me

Greek Anthology 7.704 = Tragicorum Graecorum Fragmenta, Vol. 2: Fragmenta Adespota, edd. R. Kannicht and B. Snell (Göttingen: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, 1981; rpt. 2007), #513, p. 145 (tr. W.R. Paton):
When I am dead may earth be mingled with fire. It matters not to me, for with me all is well.

ἐμοῦ θανόντος γαῖα μιχθήτω πυρί·
οὐδὲν μέλει μοι· τἀμὰ γὰρ καλῶς ἔχει.
See also Renzo Tosi, Dictionnaire des sentences latines et grecques, tr. Rebecca Lenoir (Grenoble: Jérôme Millon, 2010), #1038, pp. 764-765.
