Leonidas of Tarentum Quote
Far from Italy, far from my native Tarentum I lie; and this is the worst of it—worse than death. An exile's life is no life. But the Muses loved me. For my suffering they gave me a honeyed gift: My name survives me. Thanks to the sweet Muses Leonidas will echo throughout all time.
