On the Tomb of Themistocles
Plato the Comic Poet
 
Translated by R. Cumberland

BY the sea’s margin, on the watery strand,
Thy monument, Themistocles, shall stand:
By this directed, to thy native shore
The merchant shall convey his freighted store;
And when our fleets are summoned to the fight,        5
Athens shall conquer with thy tomb in sight.
