Eulogy on Sophocles
By Phrynichus (Fifth Century B.C.)
 
        Phrynichus, the comic poet, is best known to us for his tender tribute to Sophocles! It will be remembered that even Aristophanes, in the ‘Frogs,’ dares not ridicule for a moment the lamented and popular tragic poet.

FORTUNATE Sophocles! His life was long,—
An artist still, and happy, to the last.
Many the noble tragedies he wrought
Blessed his end. No sorrow he endured.
