Transcript TEMPLE OF JUPITER PANHELLENIUS. * Ex Asia rediens, cum ab ^gina Megaram versus navigarem, ccepi regiones circumcirca prospicere. Post me erat iEgina, ante Megara, dextra Piraeeus, sinistra Corinthus: quae oppida quodam tempore flo- rentissima fuerunt, nunc prostrata et diruta ante oculos jacent. Ccepi egomet mecum sic cogitare: Hem, nos homunculi indignamur, si quis nostrum interiit, aut occisus est, quorum vita brevior esse debet, cum uno loco tot oppidum cadavera projecta jaceant?"— Cicero, Fam. IV. " On my return out of Asia, as I was sailing from iEgina toward Megara, I amused myself with contemplating the countries around. Behind me lay iEgina, before me Megara; on my right Piraeeus, on my left Corinth. These cities, once so flourishing and magnificent, now presented nothing to my view but a sad spectacle of desolation. 'Alas!' I said to myself, 'shall so short-lived a creature as man complain when a fellow-mortal falls either by the hand of violence, or by the common course of nature; while in this narrow compass, so many great and glorious cities, formed for a much longer duration, lie thus extended in ruins?' " Melmoth. (plXav l,evu)v apovpav, TaV tot evavSpov re Kai vav- (Ti kXvtuv SeaaavTo, nap flti)- fxbv irarepog 'EXXaviov SraVrec, irtTvav r eig didepa yei°aQ d/ia 'EvSaidog dplyvioreg viol." Pindar, Nem. V. '' O island of the stranger's love, iEgina, favourite of Jove ! When, bowed before his sea-girt shrine, Old heroes raised their hands to heaven, To thee this destiny divine By the Hellenian Sire was given, To nurse heroic men, and crown Thy masts unnumbered with renown."
