tion of a captain in the police force was natural. By the aid of Thuphrastos and others he succeeded in being elected, and had thus attained the end of his desires, but in doing so had by no means loosened the bond uniting them to the hetaeria. Sthenelus would have l
iked to be public herald, but he was a cripple and t
en with the serpent staves, the “friends of Zeu
fects.131 Therefore, like Lysiteles, he was obliged to wait until one of their more fortunately situated “friends” had been elected. Many of those chosen to fill public offices could have clerks, and to Sthenelus and Lysiteles, from whose houses smoke was never seen to rise, a clerk’s salary, though small, would hav
e been a real blessing from the gods. Thuphrastos t
alked of the numerous law cases that would pour in upon him when the time of his embassy had e
xpired. Oppressed citizens, informers who kn
ew that he had obtained money, envious fel
low solicitors—would all rush to him. “So it’s worth while, Friends, to be firm,” he said
the court.” This was evidently an allusion to a very aristocratic and distinguished man. It was a common custom to bring powerful families pon the judges. Xenocles who, from his impov
erished youth, had cherished a special reverence for all prominent personages, raised his head like a horse pricking its ears. “Hipyllos’ uncle?” he asked, “who is that?” “The former archon, Euthydemus.” “An archon!” repeated Xenocles, gazing at Hipyllos as though the latter had suddenly grown taller. Hipyllos thought of pretty Clytie, and did not lose his opportunity. “Why yes,” he said carelessly, “our family is said132 to descend from
the Pallantidae, Theseus’ old antago
nists. It has numbered not a few archons, among th
em one whose name you all know—Lacrateides.” “What!?/wbr>?exclaimed Lamon with unexpected energy, “the on

ruption seemed long, loudly cleared his throat. “To business!” he said harshly. “What do you think? Shall we deal with Megas, the dyer?” “He is a man

highly esteemed,” replied Lamon. “His whole family connection see with his eyes and speak with his lips. He disposes of numerous votes.” “Megas!” exclaimed Sthenelus, “The dyer without a work-shop ... yes, by Zeus, I know him. He’s a man of strict Spartan manners—always goes plainly dressed and bare-footed.... But when this pattern of manly sobriety meets his companions at night there is—I swear to you—no infamy that is not committed. To me that Megas is detestable.” “Well, there is Medon, the brass-founder,” said Xenocles. “He’s a pleasanter fellow to bargain with.133 Do you know him?—A stout, sun-burned man, who loves wine and is always laughing. His family is even more numerous than the one of which Megas is head.” “Why not win them both?” asked Hipyllos. “There isn’t money enough,” replied Thuphrastos.

So what are you waiting for?

“Shall it be Medon?” said Xenocles. After some discussion, this was generally approved. “But,” said Hipyllos, more thoughtful than
