  Plutarch: Life of Aratus (1) - translation
As she was a person of generous sentiments, and persuaded besides that it was by the direction of some deity that the child had taken refuge with her, she concealed him in one of her apartments till night, and then sent him privately to Argos.
Xenocles and his companions, after they had taken the height of the wall, reported, at their return, that it was neither impracticable nor difficult, but that it was dangerous to attempt it on account of some dogs kept by a gardener, which were little indeed, but at the same time extremely fierce and furious.
This tyrant, who had Antigonus for his ally, who kept so large a body-guard, and had not left one of his enemies alive in the city, would not suffer his guards to do duty in the palace, but only in the vestibule and porticoes about it.

 Trial of Socrates - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Alcibiades betrayed Athens in favour of Sparta, and Critias, his sometime disciple, was a leader of the 30 tyrants, (the pro-Spartan oligarchy that ruled Athens for a few years after its defeat during the Peloponnesian War), though there is also a record of their falling out.
Athens had been going through some difficult times, and the attack on Socrates was due in large part to Critias, a member of the 30 tyrants, and Alcibiades, an aristocrat who defected in the Peloponnesian War.
Both had been close associates of Socrates; however, although he was a critic of democracy, he remained loyal to it and never condoned the tyranny of the oligarchs who held power for a short time in Athens before Socrates's trial.

 Tyrants, kings, dynasts and generals:   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
The term ‘age of tyrants’ has become accepted shorthand for the period 650-500, but it is wrong to suggest that tyranny disappeared from Greece after this date, or that it was a purely Greek phenomenon.
Tyrants and tyranny evoked widely differing responses in our sources, and were a preoccupation of political theorists, therefore we particularly invite contributions on political philiosophy and the ancient understanding of tyranny.
Its purpose is also to give tyrants and tyranny the credit they deserve, not as the simple antithesis of democracy, or as a sign of political failure, but as a dynamic and developing response to the social and political pressures of the period.

 Critias, Greece, ancient history
At the end of the Peloponnesian war in 404 BC Critias was called back when the Spartans demanded it in the peace negotiations after they had defeated Athens.
On his return he was elected to the dictatorial, Sparta friendly government that consisted of 30 tyrants.
In 403 the 30 tyrants were toppled, and ironically, Critias did not die then, but in a common street fight in Pireus.

More than 30 years ago, during the dark days of the despicable Idi Amin, I would yearn for some way for the world to rid itself of tyrants.
The decision to strike down the tyrant was made by a blameless, saint-like African leader, not the president of an imperial power.

 apology
When the Spartans defeated Athens and tore down the long walls, a body of thirty oligarchic rulers, called the 30 Tyrants, were appointed to administer the city.
No one could be brought up on charges of association with the 30 because the city had declared a general amnesty; nonetheless suspicion about Socrates, and others, abounded.
The men who brought charges against Socrates were Anytus (who was exiled by the 30 Tyrants), Meletus, and Lycon.

The 30 tyrants may have tried to stop Socrates from teaching "the art of words." Also, Socrates refused their direct order to help arrest for execution a pro-democracy alien, Leon of Salamis.

If Ariston's wife was Periktione, then he was probably comfortably off (though he is not known to have performed a liturgy) for Periktione is said to have been a niece of Kritias, who led the 30 tyrants in 404.
Periktione’s brother Kharmides was also with the 30 tyrants.
