*)ek tw=n *(hraklei/dou peri\ *politeiw=n. Kings were no longer chosen from the house of Codrus,King of Athens, died 1068 B.C. (by the mythical chronology). because they were thought to be luxurious and to have become soft. But one of the house of Codrus, Hippomenes, who wished to repel the slander, taking a man in adultery with his daughter Leimone, killed him by yoking him to his chariot with his daughter [? emend 'with his team'], and locked her up with a horse till she died.722 B.C.; the Attic nobles deposed him in punishment. *)ek tw=n *(hraklei/dou peri\ *politeiw=n. The associates of CylonThis nobleman seized the Acropolis to make himself tyrant. When blockaded he escaped. His comrades were induced to surrender by the archon, Megacles of the Alcmaeonid family, who promised to spare their lives, but then put them to death. From what follows in the text it appears that the movement to punish this sacrilege only came to a head after
tained from attacking the Messenians, until at last some favourable signs in the sacrifices encouraged them to undertake a fresh campaign against Ithome. A battle was fought, in which king Euphaes lost his life, and as he left no heir to the throne, Aristodemus was elected king by the Messenians, notwithstanding the opposition of some, who declared him unworthy on account of the murder of his daughter. This happened about B. C. 729. Aristodemus shewed himself worthy of the confidence placed in him: he continued the war against the Lacedaemonians, and in B. C. 724 he gained a great victory over them. The Lacedaemonians now endeavoured to effect by fraud what they had been unable to accomplish in the field, and their success convinced Aristodemus that his country was devoted to destruction. In his despair he put an end to his life on the tomb of his daughter, and a short time after, B. C. 722, the Messenians were obliged to recognize the supremacy of the Lacedaemonians. (Paus. 4.10-13.)

There is, therefore, probably some corruption in the numbers in the passage of Herodotus. There can be little doubt that the Ethiopian dynasty reigned over Egypt in the latter half of the eighth century before the Christian era. They Are mentioned in the Jewish records. The So, king of Egypt, with whom Hosea, king of Israel, made an alliance about B. C. 722 (2 Kings, 17.4), was in all probability the same as the second king of the dynasty, Sebichus; * So is in Hebrew which may have been pronounced originally Sova or Seva, and which would then bear a still stronger resemblance to Sebichus. and the Tirhakah, king of the Ethiopians, who was preparing to make war against Sennacherib, in B. C. 711 (Is. 37.9), is evidently the same as the Taracus of Manetho, as has been already remarked. Herodotus speaks of Sethon as king of Egypt at the time of S
