During this first trip Dionysius's brother-in-law, Dion of Syracuse, became one of Plato's disciples, but the tyrant himself turned against Plato.
One story, based on a mutilated manuscript, Although Socrates influenced Plato directly as related in the dialogues, the influence of Pythagoras upon Plato also appears to have significant discussion in the philosophical literature. Hare, this influence consists of three points: (1) The platonic Republic might be related to the idea of "a tightly organized community of like-minded thinkers", like the one established by Pythagoras in Croton.
Pythagoras, or in a broader sense, the Pythagoreans, allegedly exercised an important influence on the work of Plato.

These and other references suggest a considerable amount of family pride and enable us to reconstruct Plato's family tree.
