The headword is quoted from Aristophanes, Clouds 1338 (web address 1), where Strepsiades says this bitterly to his son Pheidippides after the latter's instruction in sophistry: "so I had you taught to speak against what is just". (The headword also occurs, independently of that, in Xenophon, Cyropaedia 1.6.2.) The remainder of the entry comes from one of the several scholia on the word.
