2. An Athenian, nick-named "squinter" (στρεβλός). He was attacked by Plato, the comic poet, in his play called "Peisander," which, however, chiefly dealt with his more famous name-sake [No. 1], with whom he seems to have been consessed temporary. In the "Maricas" of Eupolis the two are thus distinguished,--
στρεβλός; οὔκ ἀλλ᾽ μέγας, οὑνοκίνδιος.

(Meineke, vol. i. pp. 178, 179, ii. pp. 501, 502 Schol. ad Arist. Av. 1556. ad Lysistr. 490).
