The sequence starts well enough (for Drakon see
delta 1495; for
Solon,
sigma 776,
sigma 777,
sigma 779), but
Thales was not an Athenian (see
theta 17) and the tragedian
Aeschylus (
alphaiota 357) not, in any reasonable sense, a lawgiver. Some enlightenment comes from the fuller version of all this in Joannes Malalas,
Chronographia p.72 Dindorf, where "
Aeschylus" turns out to be one of the early Athenian kings; but the chronology is all over the place (and
Thales "the Milesian" is still part of it).
