“I would rather serve as slave to another man

a man with no land and livelihood

than be a king over all the rotted corpses”

 

βουλοίμην κ’ ἐπάρουρος ἐὼν θητευέμεν ἄλλῳ,

ἀνδρὶ παρ’ ἀκλήρῳ, ᾧ μὴ βίοτος πολὺς εἴη,

ἢ πᾶσιν νεκύεσσι καταφθιμένοισιν ἀνάσσειν.

 

Achilles’ words to Odysseus (according, of course, to Odysseus)

 

Paul Thomas’ “Odysseus meets Achilles”
