Surely even as thou liest dead in this tomb I deem the wild beasts yet fear thy white bones, huntress Lycas; and thy valour great Pelion knows, and splendid Ossa and the lonely peaks of Cithaeron.
-- Simonides, On a Thessalian Hound
Bonus! Inscription for a different kind of pet:
On Democritus would I the grasshopper draw deep sleep when I let loose shrill music from my wings; and Democritus over me when I was dead reared this fitting tomb, О wayfarer, nigh to Oropus.
-- Phaennus, On a Grasshopper
