Assasiniation , Plutarch
...Pausanias, having had an outrage done to him at the instance of Attalus
and Cleopatra, when he found he could get no reparation for his disgrace
at Philip's hands, watched his opportunity and murdered him. The guilt
of which fact was laid for the most part upon Olympias, who was said to
have encouraged and exasperated the enraged youth to revenge; and some
sort of suspicion attached even to Alexander himself, who, it was said,
when Pausanias came and complained to him of the injury he had received,
repeated the verse out of Euripides's Medea- "On husband, and on father,
and on bride."
However, he took care to find out and punish the accomplices of the conspiracy
severely, and was very angry with Olympias for treating Cleopatra inhumanly
in his absence.
