An Ancient One-Liner

Filed under: — site admin @ 12:25 AM GMT-0500

This is number 104 in the Philogelos, an ancient Greek joke-book:

A greedy man writing his will made himself his own heir.

Philárguros diathékas gráphwn heautòn kleronómon étaxen.

Not very funny? It’s actually better than average for the collection.
