"Since Diitrephes, with only wicker-flask wings, was chosen phylarch."[1] And elsewhere: "Diitrephes [...] has set flying", in reference to those exerting persuasion with a particular matter in view. "Diitrephes with his words has set my boy terribly flying into horse-driving". This Diitrephes was rich and in a position to keep horses; he was the first of the wicker-flask weavers to become phylarch. Having prospered, he was advising others, too, to be hipparchs.
