"King Croesus, watching Persian soldiers sack [his capital city], is supposed to have asked the Persian King Cyrus, ‘What is it that all those men of yours are so intent upon doing?’

‘They are plundering your city and carrying off your treasures,’ Cyrus replied.

‘Not my city or my treasures,’ Croesus corrected him. ‘Nothing there any longer belong to me. It is you they are robbing.’"

Diodorus Siculus, Greek Historian, 1st century BC
