Phocion

surnamed The Good, who resisted all the bribes of Alexander and his successor. It was this real patriot who told Alexander to turn his arms against Persia, their common enemy, rather than against the states of Greece, his natural allies.

Phocion the Good, in public life severe.
To virtue still inexorably firm.

Thomson: Winter.
