2. A man who is violently attacked by Aristophanes in a very obscure passage (Ran.
705-716), where he is spoken of as a bath-man, puny in person, dishonest, drunken, and quarrelsome. The Scholiast says (ad Arist. l.c.
), that he was a rich man, but of foreign extraction.
He seems to have been a meddler in politics, and a mischievous charlatan of the day.
