Excerpt from Plutarch's Lives, Vol. 6 of 6: Translated From the Original Greek; With Notes Critical and Historical, and a Life of Plutarch After Dionysius the Elder had seized the govern ment of Sicily *3 he married the daughter of Her mocrates, a Syracusan. As the monarchic power however was yet but ill established, she had the misfortune to be so dreadfully abused in her person by an outrageous faction, that she put an end to her life. When Dionysius was confirmed in his govern ment, he married two wives at the same time. One was Doris, a native of Locris; the other Aristos mache, the daughter of Hipparinus, a principal p son in Syracuse, who had been his collegue when he was first appointed general of the Sicilian forces. 'l'hese wives, it is said, he married on the same day. It is not certain which he enjoyed first, but he was afterward most impartial in his attentions to them for both attended him at his table, and alternately partook of his bed. As Doris had the disadvantage of being a foreigner, the Syracusans sought every method of obtaining the preference for their coun trywoman; but it was more than equivalent to the disadvantage ofthe former, that she had the honour of giving Dionysius his eldest son. Aristomache on the contrary was for a long time barren, though the king was extremely desirous of having children by her, and even put Doris' mother to death, on a supposition that she had prevented her conception by potions.
