Forbes Mausoleum (inscription above doorway)
Forbes Mausoleum (inscription above doorway)
"The Mausoleum appears to have been erected by the first William Forbes for his wife who died very suddenly. Above the doorway there is an inscription in Greek which appears to be a verse by the poet Lucian. A free but reasonably accurate rendering of this is:

All things we mortals call our own
Are mortal too and quickly flown;
But could they all for ever stay,
We soon from them must pass away."
