[3] And once Titus Flamininus, making fun of certain parts of his figure, said: ‘Philopoemen, what fine arms and legs thou hast; but belly thou hast not’; for Philopoemen was quite slender at the waist. This piece of fun, however, was aimed the rather at his resources. For though he had excellent men-at-arms and horsemen, he was often at a loss for money. However, these stories are told of Philopoemen in the schools of philosophy.
