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…
