οὔτις αἰδοῖος μετ’ ἀστῶν καὶ περίφημος θανὼν
γίνεται· χάριν δὲ μᾶλλον τοῦ ζοοῦ διώκομεν
οἱ ζοοί, κάκιστα δ’ αἰεὶ τῷ θανόντι γίνεται.
No one is respected among the citizens when he is dead, not even if he is well known. But rather we living curry the favour of the living, and things are always worst for the dead.
