Carmen Convivalium 444

Health is the finest thing for mortal man, the second finest is to bear noble children, third to win riches without fraud, and fourth to be young among one’s friends.

ὑγιαίνειν μὲν ἄριστον ὰνδρὶ θνητῷ,
δεύτερον δὲ καλὸν φυὰν γενέσθαι,
τὸ τρίτον δὲ πλουτεῖν ὰδόλως,
καὶ τὸ τέταρτον ἡβᾶν μετὰ τῶν φίλων.
