Of Aigina [Myth, Place]. He came to Athens on a sightseeing trip but heard Diogenes [lecturing] and became a philosopher. His father[1] sent his brother[2] out after him, who himself had the same experience; and when their father returned to look for the pair of them, he also became a philosopher. Another associate of his was Phokion the Good.[3] After his death [Diogenes] was buried in Corinth, and there is a dog on his gravestone. And he was honoured in Sinope with a statue and an epigram [which read]: "time makes even gold grow old; but your renown, Diogenes, not all eternity will destroy. For you alone showed mortals the glory of a self-sufficient life and the easiest path of existence."[4]
