Cleobis

by Micha F. Lindemans
The son of Cydippe, a priestess of Hera on Argos, and brother of Biton. One day when their mother was going to a festival in Hera's honor, the oxen which would pull the cart were overdue. The brothers decided to pull the wagon themselves to the sanctuary which was 45 stadien (8km) from their home. The grateful mother requested the goddess to grant her children the best thing a human being can become in life. Hera let the brothers die in their sleep.
