Laughing at his own son, who got his mother, and by his mother's means
his father also, to indulge him, he told him that he had the most
power of any one in Greece: "For the Athenians command the rest of
Greece, I command the Athenians, your mother commands me, and you
command your mother."
-- Plutarch (46-120 AD)
-- Life of Themistocles
