June 13: Athens Flouts Aristides (Vol. 12, pp. 85-94)

Athenians called Aristides "The Just." Of course, with a moniker like that, people are going to get tired of you after a while. Sure enough, they did and banished him from Athens for no other reason than just being tired of his presense. Plutarch tells the story today and it's great reading.
