‘Be cheerful, live your life:’ Ancient mosaic ‘meme’ found in Turkey’s south
Quote:What could be considered an ancient motivational meme which reads “be cheerful, live your life” in ancient Greek has been discovered on a centuries-old mosaic found during excavation works in the southern province of Hatay.

Demet Kara, an archaeologist from the Hatay Archaeology Museum, said the mosaic, which was called the “skeleton mosaic,” belonged to the dining room of a house from the 3rd century B.C., as new findings have been unearthed in the ancient city of Antiocheia.

They knew what's up.

Awesome. Smile

The infant death rate was high, so the ancients were very accepting of death. The Romans had a contempt for it, which is why the games were so popular.

Thanks for sharing. Smile

Seems to be the right motto, living in a city that was riddled by earthquakes. Big Grin
