Edit


530 BC - Harmodius was born.

514 BC - Hipparchus sought the sexual favours of Harmodius, who was, the historian Thucydides tells us, "then in the flower of youthful beauty," which would have made him about fifteen.

         - Harmodius rejected Hipparchus and told Aristogeiton what had happened. Hipparchus, spurned, avenged himself by having Harmodius' young sister disqualified from carrying a ceremonial offering basket at the Panathenaea festival on the pretext she was not a virgin, as required.

514 BC - Harmodius died.
