C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Apostrophe to Plutarch
By Agathias (c. 530–582)
 
CHERONEAN Plutarch, to thy deathless praise
Does martial Rome this grateful statue raise;
Because both Greece and she thy fame have shar’d
(Their heroes written, and their lives compar’d);
But thou thyself could’st never write thy own:        5
Their lives have parallels, but thine has none.
