"It incited him more to be fixated such a reputation, that he was called Pyrrhus in acclamations by the rabble-like crowd. If [they] shouted this because of his being ruddy-faced, they were saying reasonable things, but if [they shouted] to praise his manliness, [he said] they were deceiving him like a youth. For he was not aiming at heroes, like Pyrrhus or Achilles, but he was woman-mad, like Paris."[2]
