Phidippides nuntius et cursus Marathonius

Comments From the Crowd Gathering
Around the Body of Phidippides,
Reporter of the Greek Victory
Over the Persians at Marathon,
Soon AfterHe Gasped, "We Won,"and Died.


"Gosh, he must have run five, six miles. He looks beat."

"It seems that, after a clear conscience, the best thing for a man to take on a journey is a little water."

"I admire his diction."

"Back up. Give him a little room to catch his breath."

Klassicist humor at it's finest!
