Description

Papier mache mask. $535. 13″W x 16″H x 5″D. The Seikilos Epitaph is the oldest extant piece of complete music we have, dating from somewhere between 200 BCE and 100 CE. This song, with lyrics and musical notation, was engraved on an ancient tombstone. There are various translations of the verse: “As long as you live, shine, Let nothing grieve you beyond measure. Life exists only a short while and time will claim its toll.”
