Greece and Turkey in Europe: Vol. XIX.  1876–79.
 
Greece: Geraneia
Inscribed on a Cenotaph
Simonides (c. 556–468 B.C.)
 
Anonymous translation

O CLOUD-CAPT Geraneia, rock unblest!
Would thou hadst reared far hence thy haughty crest,
By Tanais wild, or wastes where Ister flows,
Nor looked on Sciron from thy silent snows!
A cold, cold corpse he lies beneath the wave,        5
This tomb speaks, tenantless, his ocean-grave.
