Alexander Pope (1688–1744).  Complete Poetical Works.  1903.
 
Poems: 1718–27
The Curll Miscellanies
IV. Epitaph
 
        Imitated from a Latin couplet on Joannes Mirandula:—
        Joannes jacet hic Mirandula: cætera norunt
Et Tagus et Ganges—forsan et Antipodes.

  First applied by Pope to Francis Chartres, but published in this form in 1727.

HERE lies Lord Coningsby—be civil!
The rest God knows—perhaps the Devil.
