A Voice from Beyond the Grave

Greek Anthology 7.32 (by Julianus, Prefect of Egypt, on Anacreon, tr. W.R. Paton):
Often I sung this, and I will cry it from the tomb, "Drink ere ye put on this garment of the dust."

πολλάκι μὲν τόδ᾽ ἄεισα, καὶ ἐκ τύμβου δὲ βοήσω·
    "πίνετε, πρὶν ταύτην ἀμφιβάλησθε κόνιν."
