Translation:
Philolaos says: "watch out for suspicion - that is the best advice I give everyone. For even if you do not act, yet seem to, you are in for trouble. So Kroton, his native city, once killed Philolaos, he who had appeared to want the house of a tyrant".
Greek Original:
Ὑπόνοια: Φιλόλαός φησι: τὴν ὑπόνοιαν μάλιστα πᾶσι προλέγω θεραπεύειν: εἰ γὰρ καὶ μὴ δρᾷς, ἀλλὰ δοκεῖς ἀτυχεῖν. οὕτω καὶ Φιλόλαον ἀνεῖλε Κρότων ποτὲ πάτρη, ὥς μιν ἔδοξε θέλειν δῶμα τύραννον ἔχειν.
Note:
Actually an epigram, by Diogenes Laertius 8.84 (= Greek Anthology 7.126), about Philolaos; cf. phi 384.
