    Hi, I want to engrave this phrase on a pedestal under artifacts from the world.

    Hi,

    Is "here rise" wordplay on the epitaph phrase "here lies"?
  3. michael alekhandro New Member

    No not really it’s more like " here are elevated"

    OK.

    I take it by "memories" you mean objects kept for memory, souvenirs, and that by "of the world" you mean from different places all over planet Earth?
  5. michael alekhandro New Member

    Yes exactly, souvenirs from all around earth

    I would suggest hic surgunt memoriae orbis.

    Memoriae ("memories") isn't comonly used that way, but then again neither is "memories" in English, and I thought the Latin could work in a similarly poetic sort of way.

    Yes that’s what I thought thank you!
