The double marriage of Dionysius I of Syracuse to Doris of Locris and Aristomache of Syracuse is mentioned by different historians, including Diodorus, Plutarch, and Aelianus. According to sources supporting Dion and opposed to Dionysius I, and which were used by Plutarch and Aelianus, these marriages took place at the same time and, for this reason, descendants of both spouses were equally important in the lineage. On the contrary, other literary and epigraphic texts (Diodorus and Tod 133) state that Doris was married first: this priority gave her city, Locris, a sort of pre-eminence. Dionysius’ action against the Italiots are also investigated in the light of Diodorus, Strabo, Dionysius of Halicarnassus and Justinus.
