Seikilos epitaph
While you live, shine
have no grief at all
life exists for only a short while
and time demands an end

The Seikilos epitaph is the oldest surviving complete musical composition, including musical notation, from anywhere in the world. The epitaph has been dated variously from around 200 BC to around AD 100, but the first century AD is the most probable guess.
