1. THEANO II 1. Theano 11 to Euboule According to Theano II, a later Theano than she who was Pythagoras' wife, it is a woman's responsibility to raise her children so that they will become virtuous, harmonious adults. If she does not conscientiously attempt to meet this responsibility she contributes to the personal disorder of her children's souls, and ultimately, to the disorder of society. Phintys made precisely the same kind of claim Theano II makes.

For the righteous this is wise and honorable. But if someone should despise her parents, having in mind evil of any sort, alive and dead she will be charged with sin by the gods; she will be hated by mankind and for eternity, along with the impious in their place beneath the earth, she will be assailed by evils at the hands of justice and the gods below, who are appointed as overseers of these things. The very sight of one's parents is divine and lovely, so too the veneration and care of them. Not even the sight of the sun and all the stars which the sky wears and whirls around can compare, nor indeed anything else anyone might Aesara of Lucania, Phintys of Sparta, and Perictione I 39 think to be a greater object for contemplation.

C. D. The original or "early" Pythagoreans included the immediate members of his family and other successors who headed Pythagorean societies or cults in parts of Greece and southern Italy. C. C. D. The early Pythagoreans included Themistoclea, Theano, Arignote, Myia and Damo. With the possible exception of Themistoclea, these women were members of Pythagoras' family. Late Pythagoreans, including Phintys, Aesara of Lucania, Perictione, (possibly) Perictione II, and Theano II can better be described as philosophers in the Pythagorean tradition.
