Vetting Status: high
[sc. A name applied to] those notorious for villainy. He was a foreigner who lived in Athens at the time of the Peloponnesian War. Aristophanes in Amphiareus [says]: "o wretch and Phrynondas and villain you".[1] From him they call villains Phrynondas.
This Phrynondas [was] evil and wicked, someone who for money easily put together scheming plans for bad ends, as Eudemus says.[2]
And elsewhere: "but I think that neither Phrynondas nor Eurybatos nor any other of the villains of old ever behaved as such a trickster and cheat [as Demosthenes]".[3]
