4. An Athenian, who, if we may believe a story preserved in St. Jerome (c. Jovin. i. p. 186; comp. Schneid. ad Xen. Hell. 2.3.2), was slain at a banquet by the thirty tyrants, who then obliged his daughters to dance naked before them on the floor that was stained with their father's blood. To avoid further and worse dishonour, the maidens drowned themselves.
