C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
A Nameless Grave
By Paulus Silentiarius
The Greek Anthology
 
Translation of William Cowper

MY name, my country, what are they to thee?
What, whether proud or bare my pedigree?
Perhaps I far surpassed all other men;
Perhaps I fell below them all. What then?
Suffice it, stranger, that thou seest a tomb.        5
Thou knowest its use. It hides—no matter whom.
