He died at the age of 85, probably about B. C. 478. (Lucian, Macrob. 100.26.) Simonides wrote two epitaphs upon him (Anthol. Pal. 7.24, 25), the Athenians set up his statue in the Acropolis (Paus. 1.25.1), and the Teians struck his portrait on their coins. (Visconti, Icon. Grecque, pl. 3.6.) The place of his death, however, is uncertain. The second epitaph of Simonides appears to say clearly that he was buried at Teos, whither he is supposed to have returned after the death of Hipparchus (B. C. 514); but there is also a tradition that, after his return to Teos, he fled a second time to Abdera, in consequence of the revolt of Histiaeus. (B. C. 495; Suidas, s. v. *)Anakre/wn and *Te/w.) This tradition has, however, very probably arisen from a confusion with the original emigration of the Teians to Abdera. The universal tradition of antiquity represents Anacreon as a most consummate voluptuary; and his poems prove the truth of the tradition. Though Athenaeus (x. p. 429) thought that t
Harmo'dius and ARISTOGEI'TON (*(Armo/dios, *)Aristogei/twn), Athenians, of the blood of the GEPHYRAEI, were the murderers of Hipparchus, brother of the tyrant Hippias, in B. C. 514. The following is the account we have received from the best authorities of the circumstances which induced the crime. Aristogeiton, a citizen of the middle class, was strongly attached to the young and beautiful Harnmodius, who returned his affection with equal warmth. Hipparchus endeavored to withdraw the youth's love to himself, and, failing in this, resolved to avenge the slight by putting upon him a public insult. Accordingly, he took care that the sister of Harmodius should be summoned to bear one of the sacred baskets in some religious procession, and when she presented herself for the purpose, he caused her to be dismissed and declared unworthy of the honour. Aristogeiton had been before exasperated by the advances which Hipparchus had made to Harmodius, and this fresh insult determined the two fri
he story of Harmodius, and the authority of Heracleides Ponticus, who terms him e)rwtiko/s. Of the particular events of the first fourteen years of the government of Hippias we know scarcely anything. Thucydides (6.54) speaks of their carrying on wars, but what these were we do not know. It was during the tyranny of Hippias that Miltiades was sent to take possession of the Chersonesus. [MILTIADES] But a great change in the character of his government ensued upon the murder of Hipparchus (B. C. 514), for the circumstances connected with which the reader is referred to the articles HARMODIUS and LEAENA. Hippias displayed on the occasion great presence of mind. As soon as he heard of the assassination of his brother, instead of rushing to the scene of it, he went quietly up to the armed citizens who were forming the procession, and, as though he intended to harangue them, directed them to go without their arms to a spot which he pointed out. He then ordered his guards to seize their ar

roads, which is spoken of by the ancient writers both as *(Ermh=s tetra/kefalos and as *(Ermh=s trike/falos, and which is an object of some interest on account of the allusion to it in the *Trifa/lhs of Aristophanes. It is impossible here to discuss the question at length; those who wish to pursue it may consult the following authorities. (Phot. l.c. and s.v. *Trike/faloi; Harpocrat. s.v. *Trike/falos *(Ermh=s, with the note of Valesius; Hesych. s. v. *(Ermh=s trike/falos; Etym. May. s. v. *Trike/falos; Aristoph. Frag. Triphal. No. 11, ed. Bergk, apud Meineke, Frag. Com. Graec. vol. ii. p. 1168, ed. Dindorf, in Didot's Bibliotheca, p. 510; Süvern on the Clouds of Aristophanes, p. 87.) This Hermes was set up by Procleides or Patrocleides, the friend of Hipparchus ; and therefore, if Raoul-Rochette be right, Telesarchides must have flourished under the Peisistratids, and probably before the murder of Hipparchus in B. C. 514. (R. Rochette, Lettre à M. Schorn, pp. 412, 413, 2d ed.) [P.
arnassus. As his mother was not an Athenian, Themistocles belonged to the class of nothi. (Plut. Themist. 1, compare Pericl. 100.37.) Themistocles was born about B. C. 514 as it is conjectured. In his youth he had an impetuous character; he displayed great intellectual power combined with a lofty ambition and desire of political die chief. We cannot infer from the words of Plutarch (100.3) whether Themistocles was in the battle of Marathon (B. C. 490) or not; but if he was born so early as B. C. 514, he must have been old enough for military service in B. C. 490. The fame which Miltiades acquired by his generalship at Marathon made a deep impression on Themitaken to Attica by his relations, and privately interred there. Themistocles was, according to Plutarch, sixty-five years of age when he died, and if he was born B. C. 514, he died in B. C. 449. He left several sons and daughters. The descendants of Themistocles enjoyed certain honours in Magnesia in Plutarch's time. A tomb called
