Son of Kypselos, of Corinth, [one] of the Seven Sages, born in the 38th Olympiad.[1] He wrote Advice for Human Life in 2,000 verses. This is the Periander who died because of personal grief, as his epitaph also testifies, containing the following: "Never grieve yourself if you do not succeed at something, but delight in all things equally, whatever a god gives." For the wise Periander became depressed and died because he did not obtain the outcome that he wanted.
