”Trag. Gr. Frag. Adesp. 347 (Nauck).But not one of them has represented him as dying for lack of gold. This other poem also to men of judgement seemeth not amiss—
“In this our human life, with halting hopes,
It is not glittering gold that rarest is:
Not diamond nor couches silver-wrought
Appear so brilliant in the eyes of men:
Nor do the fertile fields of earth's broad breast,
Laden with crops, so all-sufficing seem
As gallant men's unanimous resolve.
”Lyr. Gr. Frag. Adesp. 138 (Bergk).
