Gyrtias, when on a time Acrotatus, her grandson, in a fight with other boys received many blows, and was brought home for dead, and the family and friends were all wailing, said, ‘Will you not stop your noise ? He has shown from what blood he was sprung.’ And she said that people who were good for anything should not scream, but should try to find some remedy.1 [p. 459]

1 The last sentence is borrowed from Plato, Republic, 604 c.
