1. Aeschylus, Eumenides, 290-291, 669-673, 754-777, 289 (6th cent. BCE - 5th cent. BCE)

289. μολεῖν ἀρωγόν· κτήσεται δʼ ἄνευ δορὸς
2. Herodotus, Histories, 2.177.2, 5.78, 7.144.1-7.144.2 (5th cent. BCE - 5th cent. BCE)

2.177.2. It was Amasis also who made the law that every Egyptian declare his means of livelihood to the ruler of his district annually, and that omitting to do so or to prove that one had a legitimate livelihood be punishable with death. Solon the Athenian got this law from Egypt and established it among his people; may they always have it, for it is a perfect law. 5.78. So the Athenians grew in power and proved, not in one respect only but in all, that equality is a good thing. Evidence for this is the fact that while they were under tyrannical rulers, the Athenians were no better in war than any of their neighbors, yet once they got rid of their tyrants, they were by far the best of all. This, then, shows that while they were oppressed, they were, as men working for a master, cowardly, but when they were freed, each one was eager to achieve for himself.
3. Plato, Gorgias, None (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

4. Aristotle, Athenian Constitution, 22.3-22.4, 25.1, 25.4, 26.2, 27.3 (4th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

5. Lycurgus, Against Leocrates, 118, 117 (4th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

6. Plutarch, Cimon, 14.4 (1st cent. CE - 2nd cent. CE)

7. Plutarch, Pericles, 9.2-9.4, 10.5 (1st cent. CE - 2nd cent. CE)

9.2. In the beginning, as has been said, pitted as he was against the reputation of Cimon, he tried to ingratiate himself with the people. And since he was the inferior in wealth and property, by means of which Cimon would win over the poor,—furnishing a dinner every day to any Athenian who wanted it, bestowing raiment on the elderly men, and removing the fences from his estates that whosoever wished might pluck the fruit,—Pericles, outdone in popular arts of this sort, had recourse to the distribution of the people’s own wealth. This was on the advice of Damonides, of the deme Oa, as Aristotle has stated. Aristot. Const. Ath. 27.4 . 10.5. And it was thought that before this, too, Elpinice had rendered Pericles more lenient towards Cimon, when he stood his trial on the capital charge of treason. 463. B.C. Cf. Plut. Cim. 14.2-4 . Pericles was at that time one of the committee of prosecution appointed by the people, and on Elpinice’s coming to him and supplicating him, said to her with a smile: Elpinice, thou art an old woman, thou art an old woman, to attempt such tasks. However, he made only one speech, by way of formally executing his commission, and in the end did the least harm to Cimon of all his accusers.
