No Atheists in Foxholes

Aeschylus, Persians 497-499 (tr. Alan H. Sommerstein):
Those who had never before paid any regard to the gods now addressed them with prayers, making obeisance to earth and heaven.

                                              θεοὺς δέ τις
τὸ πρὶν νομίζων οὐδαμοῦ τότ᾿ ηὔχετο
λιταῖσι, γαῖαν οὐρανόν τε προσκυνῶν.
