On the death of Hippocrates, tyrant of Gela (491 BC), Gelo, who had been his commander of cavalry, succeeded him; and in 485 BC, his aid having been invoked by the Gamori (the oligarchical landed proprietors) of Syracuse who had been driven out by the populace, he seized the opportunity of making himself despot.
He was honoured as a hero, and his memory was held in such respect that when all the brazen statues of tyrants were condemned to be sold in the time of Timoleon (150 years later) an exemption was made in favour of the statue of Gelo.

 Kingdom Of Magadha
, central power of India from the 6th century BC to the 6th century AD An ancient kingdom covering what is now the state of Bihâr, it rose to a position of dominance under its first great king, Bimbisara (reigned about 543-491 BC), and was further expanded by his son Ajatasatru (reigned about 491-459 BC).
Falling briefly under the sway of Alexander the Great and his Macedonian successors, it was conquered in 321 BC by Chandragupta Maurya, who made it the center of his Mauryan Empire.
Although Magadha declined after the Mauryan dynasty died out in 185 BC, it was raised to new heights of glory under the Gupta dynasty (AD 320-550?), during whose rule a stable peace encouraged intellectual and artistic accomplishments.
