Diogenes of Sinope | Aelian, Varia Historia VIII.14

Chap. XIV. Of the death of Diogenes. Diogenes the Sinopean, being sick to death, and scarce able to goe, cast himself from a Bridge which was near the place of exercise, and charged the Keeper of the place that as soon as he was quite dead, he should throw him into the [River] Ilissus ; so little did Diogenes value Death or Burial.
