117-118: ‘Your little girl ... to an end.’ Orszula's death was a predetermined event subject to Fortune and universal law. Such a belief was common throughout antiquity and is common to many of the Latin epitaphs cited in this work. In Euripides' Alcestis Heracles likens death to a monetary debt: "Death is a debt all mortals must pay, and no man knows for certain whether he will be living on the morrow. The outcome of our fortune is hid from our eyes, and it lies beyond the scope of any teaching or craft" (782-785). Cf. Seneca, To Marcia on Consolation X 5.
