      Solon, (born c. bce —died c. bce), Athenian statesman, known as one of the Seven Wise Men of Greece (the others were Chilon of Sparta, Thales of Miletus, Bias of Priene, Cleobulus of Lindos, Pittacus of Mytilene, and Periander of Corinth).Solon ended exclusive aristocratic control of the government, substituted a system of control by the wealthy, . Solon saw through this trick, but the poor were determined to gratify Pisistratus, and the rich were afraid to resist him.
