Pittacus Quotes

The son of Hyrradius and one of the Seven Sages of Greece.
Pittacus (c. 640-568 BCE) was the son of Hyrradius and one of the Seven Sages of Greece. He was a native of Mytilene and the Mytilenaean general who, with his army, was victorious in the battle against the Athenians and their commander Phrynon. In consequence of this victory the Mytilenaeans held Pittacus in the greatest honour and presented the supreme power into his hands. After ten years of reign he resigned his position and the city and constitution were brought into good order. » Pittacus on Wikipedia
