Greek proverb: Ἅλας καὶ τράπεζαν

Here's a saying from Apostolius, C2.10, with a Latin version from Clavis Homerica. The image is by Floris van Schooten at Wikipedia. Here are some more Apostolius proverbs.

Ἅλας καὶ τράπεζαν μὴ παραβαίνειν.
Salem et mensam ne praetereas.
Never pass up salt and a supper table.
