  The Internet Classics Archive | Agis by Plutarch
Agis was of the royal family of Eurypon, son of Eudamidas, and the sixth in descent from Agesilaus, who made the expedition into Asia, and was the greatest man of his time in Greece.
Agis, therefore, believing it a glorious action, as in truth it was, to equalize and repeople the state, began to sound the inclinations of the citizens.
As soon as Agis had prevailed with his uncle, he endeavoured by his mediation to gain his mother also, who had many friends and followers, and a number of persons in her debt in the city, and took a considerable part in public affairs.

 Agis IV - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
At this time the state had been brought to the brink of ruin by the growth of avarice and luxury; there was a glaring inequality in the distribution of land and wealth, and the number of full citizens had sunk to 700, of whom about 100 practically monopolized the land.
On his return Agis fled to the temple of Athena Chalcioecus at Sparta, but soon afterwards he was treacherously induced to leave his asylum and, after a mockery of a trial, was strangled in prison, his mother and grandmother sharing the same fate (241).
Though too weak and good-natured to cope with the problem which confronted him, Agis was characterized by a sincerity of purpose and a blend of youthful modesty with royal dignity, which render him perhaps the most attractive figure in the whole of Spartan history.

 Agis, IV Biography / Biography of Agis, IV Biography
Agis, the son of Eudamidas II, was elected one of Sparta's dual kings in 244 B.C. At that time full Spartan citizenship depended on the possession of land and the ability to subscribe to the syssition, the daily group meal which constituted a civil and social occasion.
Agis proposed that all land be redistributed to 4,500 men as citizens and to 15,000 noncitizens, or perioeci, who served in the military, and that all debts and mortgages be canceled.
Agis, however, was unable to implement these proposals because the newly elected ephors of 242 B.C. were in opposition (the five ephors were magistrates who exercised control over the kings).

 by MAURICE AGIS
Agis and Jones realised that those spaces, welcome as they may be, withheld the intensity of the relationship needed by their public to feel the sensory charge as if they were in privacy and unselfconscious.
Agis presented his first solo walk-in sculpture, Colourspace, in 1980, forty nine units identical in form and size, linked by oval openings that formed an ordered space and simultaneously, an ever shifting infinity of asymmetric contrasts and abstract geometric variants of juxtaposed colour and light.
Agis has followed and mastered his radical trajectory, the fusion of light, colour that beguiles his generations of public into a partnership of being and experience within the freedom and flow of movement, both physical and sensory, and interaction with the installations.

 The Baldwin Project: Our Young Folks' Plutarch by Rosalie Kaufman
Agis heard of how Leonidas was working against him, but all he did was to get Lysander elected Ephor, and through him propose to the senate his laws.
So he advised Agis not to carry out the whole of his plan at once, but just to cancel all debts, and then the rich would without doubt [266] consent to the division of their lands, thus preventing any disturbance in Sparta.
Agis preserved such excellent discipline that his army was admired everywhere, and marched from one end of the Peloponnesus to the other without the least disorder, but they had no opportunity to gain honors.

Agis found that the young men were eager for reform, but most of the old men, who were addicted to their vices, were terrified even to hear the name of Lycurgus.

When Agis was discouraged, she kept him going, and she smoothed the way for him with the women of Sparta, who had control of most of its wealth and who had traditionally had great influence over their husbands.

 The Internet Classics Archive | The Comparison of Tiberius and Caius Gracchus with Agis and Cleomenes by Plutarch
Agis and Cleomenes may be supposed to have had stronger natural gifts, since, though they wanted all the advantages of good education, and were bred up in those very customs, manners, and habits of living which had for a long time corrupted others, yet they were public examples of temperance and frugality.
On the other side, those things which were first attempted by Agis, and afterwards consummated by Cleomenes, were supported by the great and glorious precedent of those ancient laws concerning frugality and levelling which they had themselves received upon the authority of Lycurgus, and he had instituted on that of Apollo.
The Gracchi, fighting with their fellow-citizens, were both slain as they endeavoured to make, their escape; Agis willingly submitted to his fate, rather than any citizen should be in danger of his life.
