Corinth’s Pedagogue.
Dionys’ios the younger, on being banished a second time from Syracuse, went to Corinth and became schoolmaster. He is called Dionysios the tyrant. Hence Lord Byron says of Napoleon—   1
“Corinth’s pedagogue hath now
Transferred his by-word to thy brow.”
Ode to Napoleon, stanza xiv.
