This man was the ruler of Thrace[1] for twenty-four years,[2] and at first was preoccupied with luxuries and pleasures; but once success had brought him an increase he was drawn into cruelty and anger. An example of this was when he cut his wife, the mother of his children, down the middle, starting at her genitals.
