" Near the entrance to Plataea, you may perceive the sepulchres of those who fought against the Medes. The other Greeks indeed have one common sepulchre ; but the Lacedaemonians and Athenians that fell in that battle have separate tombs; and upon them there are elegies composed by Simonides."—Transl. of Paus. " ''AirofiXexpaTe yap eg TraTepvjv tljv vjieTepuv OtjKag, ovg diroQavovrag virb M//rW, Kai racpivTag ev Trj rifjieTepq, eTtfxui/jev Kara erog eKarrTOV Prj/jioaia." Thuc. II. 3. 58. " Looke upon the sepulchres of your fathers, whom slain by the Medes, and buried in this territory of ours, we have yeerely honoured at the publike charge."—Hobbes. " Movemur enim nescio quo pacto locis ipsis in quibus eorum quos diligimus aut admiramur, adsunt vestigia. Me quidem ipsae illae nostrae Athenae, non tarn operibus magnificis, exquisitisque antiquorum artibus delectant, quam recordatione summorum virorum, ubi quisque habitare, ubi sedere, et disputare sit solitus; studioseque eorum etiam sepulcra contemplor." Cicero, Leg. II. 2. " For our feelings are put into a state of indescribable excitation, by the view even of the places where the footsteps of those whom we love or admire are to be traced. For my own part, the delight which our beloved Athens communicates, is derived not so much from the contemplation of her magnificent edifices, and exquisite works of ancient art, as from the recollection of her illustrious children, and the sight of the places where they used to dwell, to sit, and to impart instruction; and even their sepulchres I regard with a pleasing melancholy."—J. P.
