SEVEN WISE MEN, THE
Under this name were included in antiquity seven men of the period from 620-550 B.C., distinguished for practical wisdom, who conducted the affairs of their country as rulers, lawgivers, and councillors. They were reputed to be the authors of certain brief maxims in common use, which were variously assigned among them; the names also of the seven were differently given. Those usually mentioned are: CLOEBULUS, tyrant of Lindus in Rhodes ("Moderation is the chief good"); PERIANDER, tyrant of Corinth, 668-584 ("Forethought in all things") PITTACUS of Mitylene, born about 650, deliverer and oesymnetes of his native city ("Know thine opportunity"); BIAS of Priene in Caria, about 570 B.C. ("Too many workers spoil the work"); THALES of Miletus, 639-536 ("Suretyship brings ruin"); CHILON of Sparta ("Know thyself"); SOLON of Athens ("Nothing too much," i.e. observe moderation).
