Any physical deformity was purged from the bloodline. None of us were born standing less than 5'9 with perfect genetic lineage we took great care to preserve the bloodlines. We left the infants born with any physical imperfection out to die to let the gods take care of them. They received the spirit and our intent and quickly took the spirit out of the body and renewed him into another.
The Sword of Damocles is a Roman Moral Philosophy on How to Be Happy
The Meaning Behind the Sword of Damocles: Sword of Damocles, by Francesco Xanto Avelli. 1539. ""Judge no one happy until his life is over" is a familiar theme in Greek and Roman philosophical writing. [See Solon and Croesus.] One variant of this is the Sword of Damocles, which is used to describe a sense of foreboding and might translate into English idiom as "walk a mile in my shoes." Here's the story about Damocles' sword:
Roman Empire, probably late imperial period, ca. 300 to 400 CE. This is a long, thin spearhead with a slight ridge and an open socket. Spears (hasta/hastae in Latin) were used by Roman legions in tight phalanx formations, a form of warfare that came down from the Greek period and which the Romans used to great effect early in the period, against the Etruscans and other tribes in Italy. Under the Marian reforms in 107 BCE, the spear was replaced as the primary weapon by the sword.
