At the same time he must find a way to end a timeless blood feud, and learn to control his own susceptibility to the aphrodisiac effects of absolute power.Aesops protective role is one to be performed with his tongue as his only weapon but that is well known to be sharper than any sword.In the end it is Aesop who must make Solon understand that in creating a system that will rid the world of tyrants, he has become one himself.

But Solons solution to that problem is the most startling of all...
