For which reason those who hate a tyranny and find fault with the advice which Periander
gave to Thrasybulus, must not think there was nothing to be said in its defence; for the story goes, that Periander
said nothing to the messenger in answer to the business he was consulted about, but striking off those ears of corn which were higher than the rest, reduced the whole crop to a level; so that the messenger, without knowing the cause of what was done, related the fact to Thrasybulus, who understood by it that he must take off all the principal men in the city.
I believe that Periander

Van Lieshout (1980, 34) notes that "supernatural powers [including Olympian gods] involved in man's dreams are preferably chthonically conceived," while Eric Dodds (1951, 110-1) writes that enstatic dreams such as Penelope's were typical of incubation "practiced at the shrines of heroes--whether dead men or chthonic daemons--and at certain chasms reputed to be entrances to the world of the dead." In postclassical Greek dream-literature, the term [TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] was used for both ghosts and dream-figures, (26) but in non-philosophical classical literature, it was applied only to dream-figures when they are ghosts, such as the [TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] of Periander
