Revise: Pythias cause of death homicide -> it was Hermias

Please, revise the semantic triplet: spouse: Pythias "cause of death homicide"

Indicated Source:

"Aristotle married the niece of Hermias, a woman named Pythias, who was killed by the Persians some time thereafter."

Please, reinterpret the above phrase.

Hermias was tortured and killed by the Persians, not Pythias!
