Adler number: epsilon,917
Translated headword: we were vituperating

[Meaning] we were engaging in strife, such that out of competitiveness we turned to vituperation. Aristophanes in Clouds [writes]: "we were vituperating each other over the name."[1]
Agathias [writes]: "and indeed all were vituperating Narses, calling him a blowhard and a scoundrel, and in fact saying that he was a violent person and a murderer, and that otherwise his reputation for always being pious and subservient to the divine was nothing but show."[2]
