Pindar, Isthmian 1.67-8



“Anyone who keeps his wealth secret and jeers at others’ doesn’t know that he consigns a forgotten soul to hell.”


εἰ δέ τις ἔνδον νέμει πλοῦτον κρυφαῖον,

ἄλλοισι δ’ ἐμπίπτων γελᾷ, ψυχὰν ᾿Αΐδᾳ τελέων

οὐ φράζεται δόξας ἄνευθεν.


Of course, Hades is also the god of wealth…
