There, of course, they grind parched barley; for bran is ground barley. He is accusing Eukrates of having that sort of expertise; [the man] who was also called Styppax [Hempy]. Aristophanes [writes]: "take care lest he flee you; for he knows the roads, the very ones by which Eukrates fled straight to the bran-shops." [This] is said of those who are fleeing.
