Ode 6 For Lachon of Ceos [Boys'] Foot Race at Olympia 452 B. C. Lachon has won from greatest Zeus the best glory with his feet by the streams of the Alpheus [the victories] through which before Ceos rich in vines has been sung at Olympia as victorious in boxing and the foot race, by young men, luxuriant with garlands in their hair. And now by the will of Victory, the hymn of Ourania, ruler of song, honors you, wind-footed son of Aristomenes, in songs before your house, since by your triumph in the foot race you brought glory to Ceos.

rapid growth. It did not, however, prosper for long, but was razed to the ground and has remained without habitation until our own day; regarding this we shall give a detailed account in connection with the appropriate period of time.There is no further mention of Palice in the extant portions of Diodorus. Such, then, was the state of affairs in Sicily. In Italy, fifty-eight years after the Crotoniates had destroyed Sybaris, a ThessalianPresumably one of the Thessalians mentioned in Book 12.10.2. gathered together the Sybarites who remained and founded Sybaris anew; it lay between two rivers, the Sybaris and the Crathis. And since the settlers possessed a fertile land they quickly advanced in wealth. But they had possessed the city only a few years when they were again driven out of Sybaris, regarding which event we shall undertake to give a detailed account in the following Book.Book 12.9 ff.The year 452 B.C. is lacking.
Pindar, Olympian (ed. Diane Arnson Svarlien), Olympian 4 For Psaumis of Camarina Chariot Race 452 B. C. (search)
Olympian 4 For Psaumis of Camarina Chariot Race 452 B. C. Charioteer of the thundercloud with untiring feet, highest Zeus! Your Seasons, whirling to the embroidered notes of the lyre's song, sent me as a witness of the most lofty games. When friends are successful, the noble immediately smile onthe sweet announcement. Son of Cronus, you who hold Aetna, the wind-swept weight on terrible hundred-headed Typhon, receive, for the sake of the Graces, this Olympic victory-procession, this most enduring light of widely powerful excellence. For the procession comes in honor of Psaumis' chariot; Psaumis, who, crowned with the olive of Pisa, hurries to rouse glory for Camarina. May the god be gracious to his future prayers, since I praise a man who is most eager in the raising of horses,who rejoices in being hospitable to all guests, and whose pure thoughts are turned towards city-loving peace. I will not stain my words with lies. Perseverance is what puts men to the test, and what saved the

r it had suffered on Algidus, had become involved in quarrels and seditions, in consequence of an obstinate struggle between the advocates of peace and those of war. The Romans everywhere enjoyed peace. A law concerning the valuation of fines was most welcome to the people.B.C. 430-427 Having learned through the treachery of a member of the college that the tribunes were drawing one up, the consuls anticipated their action and themselves proposed it.An earlier law (Menenia Sextia, 452 B.C.) had fixed the limit of fines which magistrates might impose on their own responsibility at two sheep for poor men and thirty oxen for rich men. The present law (Papiria Julia) provided for a uniform money equivalent for these fines, viz. twenty and three thousand asses respectively. The next consuls were Lucius Sergius Fidenas (for the second time) and Hostius Lucretius Tricipitinus. Nothing noteworthy was done this year. They were succeeded in the consulship by Aulus Cornelius Co
Acestor (*)Ake/stwr), a sculptor mentioned by Pausanias (6.17.2) as having executed a statue of Alexibius, a native of Heraea in Arcadia, who had gained a victory in the pentathlon at the Olympic games. He was born at Cnossus, or at any rate exercised his profession there for some tine. (Paus. 10.15.4.) He had a son named Amphion, who was also a sculptor, and had studied under Ptolichus of Corcyra (Paus. 6.3.2); so that Acestor must have been a contemporary of the latter, who flourished about Ol. 82. (B. C. 452.) [C.P.

Capitoli'nus, P. Se'xtius or Se'xtius Vaticanus surnamed VATICANUS, was consul in B. C. 452 with T. Menenius Agrippa. In this year the ambassadors who had been sent to Athens for the purpose of consulting its laws and institutions, returned to Rome, and in the year following P. Sextius was one of the decemvirs appointed to draw up a new code of laws. Festus (s. v. peculates) mentions a lex multaticia which was carried by P. Sextius and his colleague during their consulship. (Liv. 3.32, &c.; Dionys. A. R. 10.54.) [L.S]
id to have been his rival in love. (Ath. x. p. 436f.) Ion was familiarly acquainted with Aeschylus, if we may believe an anecdote related by Plutarch (De Profect. in Virt. 8, p. 79), but he did not come forward as a tragedian till after that poet's death. We also learn from Ion himself (in his e)pidhui/ai, apud Aih. xiii. p. 603e.) that he met Sophocles at Chios, when the latter was commander of the expedition against Samos, B. C. 440. His first tragedy was brought out in the 82d Olympiad (B. C. 452); he is mentioned as third in competition with Euripides and Iophon, in Ol. 87, 4 (B. C. 429-428); and he died before B. C. 421, as appears from the Peace of Aristophanes (830), which was brought out in that year. Only one victory of Ion's is mentioned, on which occasion, it is said, having gained the dithyrambic and tragic prizes at the same time. he presented every Athenian with a pitcher of Chian wine.

Lana'tus 3. T. MENENIUS AGRIPPAE F. AGRIPPAE N. LANATUS, called by Livy Titus, and by Dionysius Lucius, but by the other authorities Tilus, was consul with P. Sestius Capitolinus Vaticanus, B. C. 452, the year before the first decenlvirate. (Liv. 3.32; Dionys. A. R. 10.54; Diod. 12.22.) It appears from Festus (s. v. peculatus) that the consuls of this year had something to do with the lex Aternia Tarpeia, which had been passed two years previously, but the passage in Festus, as it stands at present, is not intelligible.
ld temple of Hera was burnt in Ol. 89. 2, B. C. 423 (Thuc. 4.133; Clinton, F. H. s.a.); and, including the time required to rebuild the temple of the goddess, the statue by Polycleitus in the new temple could scarcely have been finished in less than ten years; which brings his life down to about B. C. 413. Comparing this conclusion with the date given by Pliny, and with the fact that he was a pupil of Ageladas, Polyclei tus may be safely said to have flourished from about Ol. 82 to 92, or B. C. 452-412. A further confirmation of this date is furnished by Plato's mention of the sons of Polycleitus, as being of about the same age as the sons of Pericles. (Protag. p. 328c.) Of his personal history we know nothing further. As an artist, he stood at the head of the schools of Argos and Sicyon, and approached more nearly than any other to an equality with the great head of the Athenian school, whom he was even judged to ave surpassed on one occasion, in the celebrated competition of the
