Post Mortem

Anonymous, Poetae Melici Graeci, no. 1009 (tr. David A. Campbell):
Then he will lie in the deep-wooded
earth with no share in drinking-parties and lyres
and the all-delightful cry of the pipes.

ἔπειτα κείσεται βαθυδένδρῳ
ἐν χθονὶ συμποσίων τε καὶ λυρᾶν ἄμοιρος
ἰαχᾶς τε παντερπέος αὐλῶν.
Cf. Theognis 973-978.
