Constantine P. CAVAFY : Ionian Song, Cântec Ionic,
Just because we have broken their statues,
just because we have driven them out of their temples,
the gods did not die because of this at all.
Doar pentru că le-am distrus statuile,
Doar pentru că le-am aruncat afară din templul lor,
Zeii nu au murit din pricina asta…
