So Let Me Die
So let me die—not ingloriously, or without a struggle,For quotations in antiquity see the Testimonialapparat in M.L. West's Teubner edition:
but having done some great deed for those unborn to learn of.
μὴ μὰν ἀσπουδί γε καὶ ἀκλειῶς ἀπολοίμην,
ἀλλὰ μέγα ῥέξας τι καὶ ἐσσομένοισι πυθέσθαι.
