1.55. Sed quia non satis alicui videbitur dilucide demon- stratum, nisi quid ex civili causarum genere exempli subiecerimus, videtur eiusmodi quoque utendum ex- emplo, non quo praeceptio differat aut aliter hoc in sermone atque in dicendo sit utendum, sed ut eorum voluntati satis fiat, qui id, quod aliquo in loco viderunt, alio in loco, nisi monstratum est, nequeunt cognoscere. ergo in hac causa, quae apud Graecos est pervagata, cum Epaminondas, Thebanorum imperator, * quod ei, qui sibi ex lege praetor successerat, exercitum non tra- didit et, cum paucos ipse dies contra legem exercitum tenuisset, Lacedaemonios funditus vicit, poterit accusator argumentatione uti per inductionem, cum scrip- tum legis contra sententiam defendat, ad hunc modum:
3. New Testament, Apocalypse, 18.21-18.24 (1st cent. CE - 1st cent. CE)

18.21. A mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and cast it into the sea, saying, "Thus with violence will Babylon, the great city, be thrown down, and will be found no more at all. 18.22. The voice of harpers and minstrels and flute players and trumpeters will be heard no more at all in you. No craftsman, of whatever craft, will be found any more at all in you. The sound of a mill will be heard no more at all in you. 18.23. The light of a lamp will shine no more at all in you. The voice of the bridegroom and of the bride will be heard no more at all in you; for your merchants were the princes of the earth; for with your sorcery all the nations were deceived. 18.24. In her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all who have been slain on the earth.
4. Diogenes Laertius, Lives of The Philosophers, 1.55 (3rd cent. CE - 3rd cent. CE)

1.55. So far Pisistratus. To return to Solon: one of his sayings is that 70 years are the term of man's life.He seems to have enacted some admirable laws; for instance, if any man neglects to provide for his parents, he shall be disfranchised; moreover there is a similar penalty for the spendthrift who runs through his patrimony. Again, not to have a settled occupation is made a crime for which any one may, if he pleases, impeach the offender. Lysias, however, in his speech against Nicias ascribes this law to Draco, and to Solon another depriving open profligates of the right to speak in the Assembly. He curtailed the honours of athletes who took part in the games, fixing the allowance for an Olympic victor at 500 drachmae, for an Isthmian victor at 100 drachmae, and proportionately in all other cases. It was in bad taste, he urged, to increase the rewards of these victors, and to ignore the exclusive claims of those who had fallen in battle, whose sons ought, moreover, to be maintained and educated by the State.
