An Odd Way To Die For An Athenian Lawman

Draco, a prominent lawman in ancient Athens, was accordingly smothered to death by 1000 of the finest cloaks, created as gifts by prominent Athenians as a show of respect to his charitable donations to the community.

He could hardly breath, say the scriptures, he gasped, fell and succumb to the fancy, hand made cloaks, never to breath again. Draco RIP 621 BC. Yes, the same Draco that stated thievery of fruit is punishable by death!
