Aeolus, a great king of Etruria, had by Amphithea six daughters, and as many sons. Macareus, the youngest [p. 468] of them, had the carnal knowledge of one of his sisters, who was delivered of a boy. Her father sent her a sword to kill the child with; but that was so impious, that she chose rather to kill herself. And Macareus laid violent hands upon himself too.—Sostratus, in his Second Book of Tuscan History.

Papirius Tolucer married Julia Pulchra, by whom he had six sons and six daughters. Papirius Romanus, the eldest of the six, got Canulia his sister with child. When the father came to the knowledge of it, he sent his daughter a sword, with which she killed herself; and Romanus did the same.—Chrysippus, in his First Book of Italian History.
