Diogenes of Sinope | Greek Anthology Anonymous

Ho. — Anonymous

Diogenes the Cynic, on his arrival in Hades, after his wise old age was finished, laughed when he saw Croesus. Spreading his cloak on the ground near the king, who once drew great store of gold from the river,^ he said : “ Now, too, I take up more room than you ; for all I had I have brought with me, but you, Croesus, have nothing.”
