Son of Iolaos,[1] from the city of Palioura in Macedonia,[2] general of Philip [II], then of Alexander [sc. the Great], and successor to the kingship; a pupil of Aristotle. He left a compilation of letters in 2 books and a history, The Illyrian Deeds of Perdikkas.[3] And he served as guardian to the son of Alexander known as Herakles.[4] He alone of the Successors did not choose to call Alexander a god, judging this impious. He lived 77 years and left a son and successor, Kassandros,[5] the man who killed Alexander's mother Olympias.[6]
[It is said] that when the Athenians surrendered Athens to Antipatros the Macedonian, the demagogues, having urged the Athenians to revolt, were afraid that they would lay the blame upon them and fled. The Athenians condemned them to death in their absence. Among them were Demosthenes the orator and Hyperides and Himeraios, [Demades] having proposed the motion for death. For he had become in no respect more moderate in his opinion, since there cannot even be any change in a nature conjoined with wickedness. The injunction of law, as it does not completely hold [that nature] in check, is overcome by it, as is the force opposing it in its various inclinations. Neither by fear is over-confidence deflected, nor is a constraining shame sufficient to persuade it into subjection to the law.[7]
