C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Sic Vos Non Vobis
By Martial (c. 40–c. 104 A.D.)
 
IF that the gods should grant these brothers twain
  Such shares of life as Leda’s Spartans led,
A noble strife affection would constrain,
  For each would long to die in brother’s stead;
And he would say who first reached death’s confine,        5
“Live, brother, thine own days, and then live mine!”
