We get one signof political disputes among the Gamoroi themselves.When Himera was founded from Zankle, we readthat the Myletids, banished from Syracuse in civilstrife, took part in the settlement. This looks likethe banishment of a whole gens, like that of theAlkmaionids at Athens and the Tarquinii at Rome ;but we know not how it came about. We know however enough to say, what we mighthave taken for granted without, that there was atSyracuse a general assembly of the whole body of theLandoivners, and also a smaller senate, we know not.
