|Inscribed on a Cenotaph|
|Simonides (c. 556468 B.C.)|
O CLOUD-CAPT Geraneia, rock unblest!
|Would thou hadst reared far hence thy haughty crest,|
|By Tanais wild, or wastes where Ister flows,|
|Nor looked on Sciron from thy silent snows!|
|A cold, cold corpse he lies beneath the wave,|| 5|
|This tomb speaks, tenantless, his ocean-grave.|
