Diodorus Siculus, Library, Book XI, Chapter 55 (search)
First of all they removed Themistocles from Athens, employing against him what is called ostracism, an institution which was adopted in Athens after the overthrow of the tyranny of Peisistratus and his sons; and the law was as follows.The institution of ostracism was incorporated in one of the laws of Cleisthenes, and was passed in 507 B.C. but first used, according to Aristotle (Aristot. Ath. Pol. 22), twenty years later, "when the people had gained self-confidence." Professor T. Leslie Shear has kindly allowed me to see an as yet unpublished paper of his, "Ostracism and the Ostraka from the Agora," which he prepared in 1941. Whereas Carcopino for the second edition of his L'Ostracisme athénien (1935) had 62 examples of the ballots used in Athenian ostracophoria (the balloting), the collection from the Agora now totals 503, and in 1937 a well on the North Slope yielded an additional 191 pieces.

ded at Marathon. It is the work of Pheidias, but the reliefs upon the shield, including the fight between Centaurs and Lapithae, are said to be from the chisel of Mysfl. 430 B.C., for whom they say Parrhasius the son of Evenor, designed this and the rest of his works. The point of the spear of this Athena and the crest of her helmet are visible to those sailing to Athens, as soon as Sunium is passed. Then there is a bronze chariot, tithe from the Boeotians and the Chalcidians in Euboeac. 507 B.C.. There are two other offerings, a statue of Pericles, the son of Xanthippus, and the best worth seeing of the works of Pheidias, the statue of Athena called Lemnian after those who dedicated it. All the Acropolis is surrounded by a wall; a part was constructed by Cimon, son of Miltiades, but all the rest is said to have been built round it by the Pelasgians, who once lived under the Acropolis. The builders, they say, were Agrolas and Hyperbius. On inquiring who they were I could discover
ng to the apparently contradictory statements in the writers who mention the name. Pausanias (6.10.2) tells us that Ageladas cast a statue of Cleosthenes (who gained a victory in the chariot-race in the 66th Olympiad) with the chariot, horses, and charioteer, which was set up at Olympia. There were also at Olympia statues by him of Timasitheus of Delphi and Anochus of Tarentum. Now Timasitheus was put to death by the Athenians, for his participation in the attempt of Isagoras in Ol. 67. 2 (B. C. 507); and Anochus (as we learn from Eusebius) was a victor in the games of the 65th Ol. So far everything is clear; and if we suppose Ageladas to have been born about B. C. 540, he may very well have been the instructor of Phidias. On the other hand Pliny (l.c.) says that Ageladas, with Polycletus, Phradmon, and Myron, flourished in the 87th Ol. This agrees with the statement of the scholiast on Aristophanes, that at Melite there was a statue of *(Hraklh=s a)leci/kakos, the work of Ageladas th
Alexander I. (*)Ale/candros), the tenth king of MACEDONIA, was the son of Amyntas I. When Megabazus sent to Macedonia, about B. C. 507, to demand earth and water, as a token of submission to Darius, Amyntas was still reigning. At a banquet given to the Persian envoys, the latter demanded the presence of the ladies of the court, and Amyntas, through fear of his guests, ordered them to attend. But when the Persians proceeded to offer indignities to them, Alexander caused them to retire, under pretence of arraying them more beautifully, and introduced in their stead some Macedonian youths, dressed in female attire, who slew the Persians. As the Persians did not return, Megabazus sent Bubares with some troops into Macedonia; but Alexander escaped the danger by giving his sister Gygaea in marriage to the Persian general. According to Justin, Alexander succeeded his father in the kingdom soon after these events. (Hdt. 5.17-21, 8.136 ; Justin, 7.2-4.) In B. C. 492, Macedonia was obliged to
Bu'bares (*Bouba/rhs), the son of Megabazus, a Persian, was sent into Macedonia to make inquiries after the missing Persian envoys, whom Alexander, the son of Amyntas I., had caused to be murdered at his father's court, about B. C. 507. Alexander induced Bubares to pass the matter over in silence, by giving him great presents and also his sister Gygaea in marriage. By this Gygaea Bubares had a son, who was called Amyntas after his grandfather. (Hdt. 5.21, 8.136.) In conjunction with Artachaees, Bubares superintended the construction of the canal which Xerxes made across the isthmus of Athos. (Hdt. 7.22

in had left unfinished when he was driven from the throne; but the lot gave the honour to Horatius, to the great mortification of Publicola and his friends. [PULVILLUS.] Some writers, however, place the dedication of the temple two years later, B. C. 507, in the third consulship of Publicola, and the second of Horatius Pulvillus. (Dionys. A. R. 5.21; Tac. Hist. 3.72.) Next year, which was the second year of the republic, B. C. 508, Publicola was elected consul again with T. Lucretius Tricipitinus. In this year most of the annalists placed the expedition of Porsena against Rome, of which an account has been given elsewhere [PORSENA]. In the following year, B. C. 507, Publicola was elected consul a third time with M. Horatius Pulvillus, who had been his colleague in his first consulship, or according to other accounts, with P. Lucretius; but no event of importance is recorded under this year. He was again consul a fourth time in B. C. 504 with T. Lucretius Tricipitinus, his colleague
eded L. Junius Brutus, but who died a few days after his appointment. (Liv. 2.8; Dionys. A. R. 5.19; Plut. Publ. 12.) Some of the annalists, however, stated that Horatius was the immediate successor of Brutus (Liv. 2.8), while Polybius (3.22) mentions Brutus and Horatius together as the first consuls. There is a difference between Dionysius and Livy respecting another point. Dionysius (5.21) makes Horatius consul a second time with P. Valerius Publicola, in the third year of the republic, B. C. 507, but Livy (2.15) speaks of P. Lucretius as the colleague of Publicola in that year, and makes no mention of a second consulship of Horatius. The account of Dionysius is supported by Tacitus (Tac. Hist. 3.72), who speaks of the second consulship of Horatius. The name of Horatius Pulvillus is chiefly celebrated by his dedication of the temple in the Capitol, which was consecrated by him in his second consulship, according to Dionysius and Tacitus. The story runs, that it had been decided by
Tricipti'nus 3. LUCRETIUS (TRICIPTINUS), consul in B. C. 507 with P. Valerius Publicola, according to Livy (2.15); but in Dionysius (5.21) and the Fasti M. Horatius Pulvillus is mentioned instead as the colleague of Publicola. [PULVILLUS, No. 1]
