" They call the houses oi the living Inns, because for a
small space we inhabit these: but the sepulchres of the dead
they name eternal mansions, because they continue with the
gods for an infinite space. Wherefore, in the structures of
their houses they are little solicitous, but in exquisitely
adorning their sepulchres they think no cost sufficient."

Diodorus Siculus, Liber I. c. 51.
