By Macedonius (Sixth Century A.D.)
|The Greek Anthology|
Translation of John William Mackail
|RIGHTEOUSNESS has raised this house from the first foundation even to the lofty roof; for Macedonius fashioned not his wealth by heaping up from the possessions of others with plundering sword, nor has any poor man here wept over his vain and profitless toil, being robbed of his most just hire; and as rest from labor is kept inviolate by the just man, so let the works of pious mortals endure.|| 1|
