But that systematic debaucher of youths of yours, is such a person as Alexis, or Antiphanes, represents him, in his Sleep—
On this account, that profligate, when supping
With us, will never eat an onion even,
Not to annoy the object of his love.
And Ephippus has spoken very well of people of that description in his Sappho, where he says—
For when one in the flower of his age
Learns to sneak into other men's abodes,
And shares of meals where he has not contributed,
He must some other mode of payment mean.
And Aeschines the orator has said something of the same kind in his Speech against Timarchus.
