quod non fecerunt Gothi, hoc fecerunt Scotti –> what the Goths did not do, the Scots did
αυτό που δεν έπραξαν οι Γότθοι, το έπραξαν οι Σκώτοι

Lord Elgin’s actions, which many outside Britain regard as theft, were sometimes criticized here, too, including by the poet Lord Byron, who is said to have scrawled “Quod non fecerunt Gothi, fecerunt Scoti” on the Acropolis (“What the Goths spared, the Scots have destroyed”).
