Where the Blame Lies

Supplementum Epigraphicum Graecum 8.269, line 13, tr. Richmond Lattimore, Themes in Greek and Latin Epitaphs (1935; rpt. Urbana: University of Illinois Press, 1962), p. 183:
All that a mortal man can do is blame the gods.

μέμψασθαι δὲ θεοῖς ἀρκεῖ μόνον ἄνδρα γε θνητόν.
There is a translation of the entire inscription here.
