Oracle















χρηστηριασαμένου αὐτοῦ τί πράττων ἄριστα βιώσεται, ἀπο-
κρίνασθαι τὸν θέον, εἰ συγχρωτίζοιτο τοῖς νεκροῖς·

When Zeno [of Citium] consulted the oracle to find out what he should do to live the best life the god answered that to live the best life he should join his flesh with the dead.

-Diogenes Laertius (Lives of the Stoics, 7.2)
