The Piety of a Boozehound

Anthologia Palatina 6.77 = Eratosthenes Scholasticus (fl. 6th cent. CE)

Xenophon the wine-guzzler
Has dedicated, Bacchus,
This empty jar.  Accept it
With a kindly disposition-
For he has nothing else.

 Οἰνοπότας Ξενοφῶν κενεὸν πίθον ἄνθετο, Βάκχε·
    δέχνυσο δ’ εὐμενέως· ἄλλο γὰρ οὐδὲν ἔχει.

Laughing Bacchus (Self-Portrait?), Jan van Dalen (fl. 1632-1670)
