66 CE: Simon, son of Saul, having killed many of his fellow Jews who were battling the Syrians in Scythopolis (Bet She'an), is overcome with guilt; he decides that he should die for the crime of fighting against his compatriots, and his family offer themselves to Simon's sword rather than being slain by the enemy. Here, he kills his aged father; he then kills his wife, his children and himself.
