Esto es un mito! : Desmitificación

Esta es una de las dos versiones que da el historiador romano Diógenes Laercio, la única fuente en cuestión, y parte indicando que "alguna gente dice". La otra versión es que Crisipo de Solos murió por beber demasiado vino no diluido en una fiesta. El relato es el siguiente: Chrysippus drank with open month some wine Then became giddy, and so quickly died. Too little thought he of the Porch's weal, Or of his country's, or of his own dear life; And so descended to the realms of Hell. [185] But some people say that he died of a fit of immoderate laughter. For that seeing his ass eating figs, he told his old woman to give the ass some unmixed wine to drink afterwards, and then laughed so violently that he died.
