“How outrageous that when a man whose business it is to act the parts of a Carion or of a Xanthias1 showed himself so noble and generous, Aeschines, the counsellor of the greatest city, the adviser of the Ten Thousand of Arcadia, did not restrain his insolence, but in drunken heat, when Xenodocus, one of the picked corps of Philip, was entertaining us, seized a captive woman by the hair, and took a strap and flogged her!”
1 Satyrus, the comic actor, would often take slave parts, for which Carion and Xanthias were among the traditional names.
