Horses from the Tyrant’s Stable

Epistles of Phalaris, 11:

To Megacles

I have sent you some horses all outfitted for the competition, and I have ordered Teucrus to give you the money. If you need anything else, don’t hesitate to write. There can be no request so great that I will not be entirely delighted by if you only ask.

The significance of the horse in ancient Greece | It's All Greek

Μεγακλεῖ.

     Καὶ τοὺς ἵππους ἐκπέπομφά σοι κεκοσμημένους ἐπὶ τὸν ἀγῶνα καὶ τὰ χρήματα δοῦναι Τεύκρῳ προστέταχα. κἂν ἄλλου του δέῃ, μὴ κατόκνει γράφειν· οὐδὲν γὰρ οὕτως ἔσται μέγα τῶν αἰτημάτων, ὃ μὴ πάντως αἰτησαμένῳ χαριούμεθα.
