This man was subject to much public criticism for cowardice. He was bellicose and belligerent for reasons of private gain. But he was also a coward. He used to wear a triple crest and distinctive armour, with the aim of seeming brave, but not being [so]. [Aristophanes] attacks him savagely in other respects too.
