In the 7th century B.C. Draco was visiting the island of Aegina to be honored in front of a large crowd in the Aeginetan theatre. Back then it was customary to honor people by throwing their clothes at them. Draco was covered in so many caps and cloaks that he suffocated and died. The implication of this story is that Draco was literally “killed by kindness”. However, some scholars have a different interpretation.
Draco was famous for coming up with the first written constitution in Athens. His laws were well-known in history as being incredibly harsh. To this day we refer to harsh laws as “draconian”. With that kind of legacy, it’s a small wonder why people would want to kill him. Combine that with the fact that Aegina was a rival city-state to Draco’s home of Athens, and there’s good reason to suggest more sinister motives behind the Draco’s gruesome death by smothering.
