Example text

Yet the Spartans soon condemned Alcibiades to death—they mistrusted him, partly because he was known to have seduced the wife of the Spartan king Agis. With Sparta and Athens both against him, Alcibiades fled to the Persian governor of western ASIA MINOR. From there he began complex intrigues with commanders at the Athenian naval base on the nearby island of SAMOS in hopes of getting himself recalled to Athenian service. , after the government at Athens fell to the oligarchic coup of the FOUR HUNDRED, and the Athenian sailors and soldiers at Samos defiantly proclaimed themselves to be the democratic government-in-exile.

Aesop (ca. E. He was said to have earned his freedom through his cleverness and lived afterward at the court of King Croesus of Sardis. On a visit to the oracle of APOLLO at DELPHI, Aesop openly criticized the priests there, who murdered him in their anger. Another version says that Aesop had been sent to Delphi by Croesus with gold as a gift to the citizens, but when he refused to distribute the money after seeing their greed, he instead sent it back to the king. The incensed Delphians then executed Aesop as a public criminal.

His Athenian contemporaries, the historians THUCYDIDES (1) and XENOPHON, describe him in their accounts of the Peloponnesian War. E. E. Alcibiades was born into a rich and powerful Athenian family during the Athenian heyday. His mother, Deinomache, belonged to the aristocratic Alcmaeonid clan. ), Alcibiades was raised as a ward of Deinomache’s kinsman PERIKLES, the preeminent Athenian statesman.
