Demosthenes [in the speech] Against Konon [uses the word].[1] Either it means individuals geared up and ready to do and experience anything whatever, or it means poor men, possessing nothing but oil-flasks. Alternatively, self-employed workers; or meaning men ready to fight with, for example, fists and whips and outrageous violence. Or else those paying cash in hand and ready for sex. For they used to keep money in oil-flasks, and often, when they had untied the oil-flask, they would use the thong for whipping.
