"Polemo[n] the sophist[1] was so arrogant that he discoursed with cities from the position of a superior, with rulers from that of no inferior, and with gods on a basis of equality." His deeds -- I mean of course those of the arrogant Polemo[n] -- are recounted more clearly in the Lives of the Sophists.[2]
