"Though silent, he speaks"


Explanation:
The language is Latin, not Greek.

Found on the internet:

The traditional W.O.W. monument had 4 objects on it. They were the Maul, Axe, Wedge and the Dove. The stone below is typical of what you would see on a WOW stone. The motto Dum Tacet Clamat is Latin meaning "though silent, he speaks".
