[*pw/gwn, genitive] pw/gwnos: a harbor at Troezen so named, from which [there is] also a proverb in reference to men with deficient beards: "but to walk to Troezen."[1]
And Aristophanes [writes]: "and I for my part have a [sc. false] beard not a little finer than Epicrates'." For this man, who had a big beard, was called Sakesphoros ["beard-bearer"] and was ridiculed for hairiness. He was an orator and a demagogue. And Aristophanes says, "o Epicrates beard-bearer, lord of the mustache."[2]
