Son of Kypselos, of Corinth, [one] of the Seven Sages, born in the 38th Olympiad.[1] He wrote Advice for Human Life in 2,000 verses. This is the Periander who died because of personal grief, as his epitaph also testifies, containing the following: "Never grieve yourself if you do not succeed at something, but delight in all things equally, whatever a god gives." For the wise Periander became depressed and died because he did not obtain the outcome that he wanted.

Περίανδρος, Κυψέλου, Κορίνθιος, τῶν ζ# σοφῶν, γεγονὼς κατὰ τὴν λη# ὀλυμπιάδα. ἔγραψεν ὑποθήκας εἰς τὸν ἀνθρώπειον βίον ἔπη #22β#. οὗτός ἐστι Περίανδρος ὁ διὰ λύπην ἰδίαν ἀποθανών: ὡς καὶ τὸ ἐπ' αὐτῷ ἐπίγραμμα μαρτυρεῖ, οὕτως ἔχον: μήποτε λυπήσῃ σε τὸ μή σε τυχεῖν τινος, ἀλλὰ τέρπεο πᾶσιν ὁμῶς, οἷσι δίδωσι θεός. καὶ γὰρ ἀθυμήσας ὁ σοφὸς Περίανδρος ἀπέσβη, οὕνεκεν οὐκ ἔτυχε πρήξιος, ἧς ἔθελεν.
