#25 Killed With Kindness: Draco Of Athens (C.620 BC)

Born in the 650 BC, Drakon or Draco, was the first recorded Athenian legislator who was known for his Draconian Constitution.

Though most accounts of his death are allegorical, he was allegedly throttled to death by an assortment of gifts, like cloaks and hats.

These were showered onto him by the citizens as an act of appreciation. Legend has it that the then 50-year-old was buried in the same theatre that literally killed him.
