Drinking Songs, 890 ( schol. Plato Gorg. 451e)

 

“The best thing for a mortal man is to be healthy

And second, to be pretty.

Third, is to be wealthy without deceit.

And fourth is to be young with friends.”

 

ὑγιαίνειν μὲν ἄριστον ἀνδρὶ θνητῶ̣

δεύτερον δὲ καλὸμ φυὰν γενέσθαι

τὸ τρίτον δὲ πλουτεῖν ἀδόλως

καὶ τέταρτον ἡβᾶν μετὰ τῶν φίλων
