Of Kleonai,[1] a victor in the pankration;[2] they say that when age obliged to him to stop competing he drew a great bow every day, to put himself to the test. But after a period away from home he was unable, on returning, to draw it; he then lit a fire and threw himself, alive, into the flames. Whenever men have done this sort of thing, or do it in future, it should not be classified as courage but insanity.
