The silent hill of Areopagus honoured this man even after his death with carvings which cannot flatter him, Iamblichus, because he built the towers, the defence wall, giving it for the common weal. This Iamblichus adorned Athens through his wisdom and raised a mighty wall for the city of Cranaus (= Athens). [...?] (trans. E. Sironen)
