"Simonides had as good a memory as anyone. Apollonius the Tyanian was like him. He kept his voice silent, but used to read through quite a lot.[1] And his memory remained stronger than Simonides' when he was a hundred years old. And he had a certain song on memory, which he sang, and in which he said everything was wasted by time, but time itself was everlasting and undying because of memory."[2]
It is written: and a certain song was sung [by him] on memory.[3]
