thegetty:

I (masculine) am parched with thirst and am dying; but grant me to drink
from the ever-flowing spring. On the right is a white cypress.
‘Who are you? Where are you from?’ I am a son of Earth and starry sky.
But my race is heavenly.

Translation of a Greek inscription from the second half of the 4th century B.C.
