Lucilius: R.I.P (From Greek)

R.I.P you apart
By Lucilius
Translated by A.Z. Foreman

Rest now in peace, and may the dust rest easy
Upon the grave your carcass leases,
Poor little Willy, that it may be easy
For dogs to dig you out in pieces.

The Original:

Εἴη σοι κατὰ γῆς κούφη κόνις, οἰκτρὲ Νέαρχε,
Ὄφρα σε ῥηϊδίως ἐξερύσωσι κύνες.
