Description: Diomedes grew his hair long like mine. Barley and flax, sunlight and sand, honey and ginger and butter; those locks of his–kindled and bleached by sunlight reflected off sea waves–drew every eye to him in whatever port we passed through. He was the golden god Aplu, and I, his dark mirror.

When we heard of Philip’s assassination, we celebrated for three days, and, in the chaotic year that followed, we rallied more and more men to our cause. Diomedes’ father began to speak of him as proudly as he had Chrysanthos, but praise flowed over Diomedes without the corresponding flood of vanity that so often drowns men’s souls. He remained as always steady, dependable, and selfless–an example I followed as best I could.
