Okay okay, so some of you may have caught on that this is a double post from my other blog, but just dont worry about it. None the less, i was reading "The Attic Nights of Aulus Gellius" the other day. In book I chapter XXIV Gellius records some epitaphs that some famous poets had written for their own graves. I fancied this one.

"Young man, although you haste, this little stone
Entreats thee to regard it, then to read its tale.
Here lie the bones of Marcus, hight Pacuvius.
Of this I would not have you unaware. Good bye."
