Aeschylus: Death Cannot Be Bribed

μόνος θεῶν γὰρ Θάνατος οὐ δώρων ἐρᾷ
οὐδ᾽ ἄν τι θύων οὐδ᾽ ἐπισπένδων ἄνοις,
οὐδ᾽ ἔστι βωμὸς οὐδὲ παιωνίζεται·
μόνου δὲ Πειθὼ δαιμόνων ἀποστατεῖ.
~Aeschylus, fragment 161

My translation:

For of gods, Death alone loves not gifts,
Neither do sacrificing nor pouring libations accomplish anything,
Nor is there an altar or paean for Him;
From Death alone does Persuasion stand aloof.

Aeschyles
