Greek proverb: ἄλλοι δ᾽ ὤναντο

Here's a saying from Apostolius, C2.29, with a Latin version from Clavis Homerica. The image is from Greg Foster at Flickr. Here are some more Apostolius proverbs.

Ἄλλοι κάμον, ἄλλοι δ᾽ ὤναντο.
Alii laborabant, alii autem fruebantur.
Some did the work, but others got the profit.
