Two ancient men were sitting by the sea. They knew they were going to die soon, but they wondered who would be first.

Lucius, aged 67, stood up and yelled at the sea: "Tell me when I will die!"

He turned around and saw three things: a white chicken pecking at some grain, a left-handed lute, and nine bottles of wine.

Then Marcus, aged 68, rose and yelled at the sea: "Tell me when I will die!"

He looked up and saw three things: an owl flying overhead, a beautiful rainbow, and four falling leaves.

The two men looked at each other and immediately realized what this meant.

***

But what did it mean? Who died first?

This market will resolve on Christmas Eve 2023, when the solution will be posted.

🧙‍♂️Resolving N/A

the answer is obviously that @MParedis died first

Poochie died on the way back to his home planet.

@Marnix if the M stands for Marcus we have our answer

wow I haven't been here long but posting a riddle then deleting your account has to be the absolute rudest thing I've seen on Manifold yet, by far. 😐

This fucker left Manifold.

The answer is; Ancient Rickroll, you got us thinking about the Roman Empire yet again.

If this resolves without explanation I'm quitting manifold.

@WrongoPhD on the upside, this might not actually resolve after all?

bought Ṁ10 of Lucius YES

I bet on this market not because I know the answer, but because I want to have something to look forward to and. talk about on Xmas Eve.
