That this is how it happened is the unanimous account of everybody, and in particular Solon himself in his poetry1 recalls the matter in these words:“For to the people gave I grace enough,
Nor from their honor took, nor proffered more;
While those possessing power and graced with wealth,
These too I made to suffer nought unseemly;
I stood protecting both with a strong shield,
And suffered neither to prevail unjustly.

Solon Fr. 5
