1.2 Dionysius II (circa 397-circa 344 bc), son of Dionysius I, ruled 367–357 and 346–344; known as Dionysius the Younger. He lacked his father’s military ambitions and signed a peace treaty with Carthage in 367. Despite his patronage of philosophers, he resisted the attempt by Plato to turn him into a philosopher king.
