  • Cleombrotus was a youth of Ambracia, a city of Epirus, who, on reading Plato's work on the immortality of the soul, was so enraptured with its teaching that he plunged headlong into the sea in order to join the Immortals.

    Scene: a precipitous cliff facing the ocean. Time: a little before sunrise. Enter Cleombrotus.
