Dionysius and the Two Friends


A beautiful instance of true friendship is handed down to us from ancient times. Damon and Pythias were firm friends. Dionysius, the tyrant, sentenced one of them to death.  He asked and obtained permission to set his house in order before the execution of the sentence. During his absence, his friend remained in custody as a hostage, ready to suffer death in his place should he not reappear at the appointed time. The day fixed for the execution drew near; the time was almost up and the condemned man had not returned to release his friend. Yet the friend never wavered in his conviction that he would eventually appear; and so he did. Dionysius so admired the faithful friendship of these two men, that he revoked the sentence. One real friendship lasts a lifetime, and between such friends explanations are not necessary.
