Once there was a man named Pythias who did something that the tyrant, Dionysius, did not like. He had to be put to jail and have a day set that he had to die. He missed his family, though. He said, “Oh, King, can I go back to my family? I have missed them so much!” Dionysius said, “How can I know that you will come back? You just want to save yourself.” Then, somebody named Damon said, “I will go to jail in place of Pythias. I know he's a true person and he always does what he says.” But if he does not come back on the day, I will die in his place.” “I agree,” said the tyrant. Then Pythias was set free. When the day was ready, Pythias did not come back at the right hour. The jailer was about to lead him to his death just as Pythias opened the door. He was late by a ship delay. The tyrant was not so bad and said, “I will not kill you because you have such faith in each other.”
