'Furthermore, this city has public order and divisions similar to the one of the Egyptians, being divided in three parts: The first established class they call Eupatridae who have the furthermost education and deemed worthy of the highest honors close to the ones held by the priests in Egypt. The second established class is the one of Geomoroi who were destined to hold arms and fight for the city similar to the ones called husbandmen by the Egyptians who provided the warriors. The last class included the Dimiourgoi who handled the painstaking jobs and performed the most menial functions, similar to this class of the Egyptians.' From Diodoros' of Sicily Library of History. Book 2:28(5-6).
