 Alcestis
Admetus, whose life can only be saved by the substitution of a voluntary victim, gravely approaches his father for neglecting to offer himself in place of Alcestis, and points out that for an old man, already on the brink of the grave, such a sacrifice would have been a graceful and becoming act.
Pheres replies, with considerable spirit, that he enjoys his life far too much to lay down the small remainder from a mistaken sense of honour.
The case is one of those in which, for the sake of a humorous situation and an effective debate, he has not scrupled to degrade one of his characters, and to destroy the moral balance of the composition.

 Genome Biology | Full text | Frontiers in plant genetics
Two genes consistently upregulated in the mea and fie mutant background were the MADS-box gene PHERES and the gene encoding S-phase kinase-associated protein 1 (SKP1), a core component of the SCF ubiquitin-ligase complex that marks cell-cycle regulators and transcription factors for degradation.
PHERES is normally expressed in embryos and endosperm at early stages of development only.
Thus, PHERES is a direct target of Mea and its lack of repression is responsible for a large part of the mea mutant phenotype.

 UQ - Classics and Ancient History: CL217 - Commentary
We should remember that one of the things parents most feared was that their children might not survive to fulfill the sacred duty of caring for them in their old age, and providing for their burial.
Pheres rebukes his son for speaking to him not merely as though he were a slave, but one of "decadent" (from the Greek point of view) oriental origin.
That of course is not entirely logical, since if Pheres had agreed to die for his son, the latter would have treated his father with honour rather than the contempt he now shows for him.

 Brush Up Your Bible: The Writing on the Wall & Weighed in the Balance
There are five coins in all (two menes, one tekel, two pheres), and these perhaps represent five successors of Nebuchadnezzar, each less substantial than his predecessor.
Each of the three names is similar and perhaps etymologically related to an Aramaic verb, so that the entire phrase might be translated as "numbered, numbered, weighed, and divided." Daniel transforms each verb, in turn, into a sentence, in both senses of the term.
From mene ("numbered") Daniel extrapolates: "God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it." From tekel ("weight"): "Thou are weighed in the balance, and art found wanting." Finally, from pheres ("halved" or "divided," with a pun on "Persian"): "Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians" (verses 25-27).
