A lame and dishonored and unlearned man. Aristophanes [writes]: "examine, each of you, what he will gain, as the community is tossed about just like Aisimos."
Greek Original:
Αἴσιμος: ὁ χωλὸς καὶ ἄτιμος καὶ ἀμαθής. Ἀριστοφάνης: σκοπεῖσθ' ἕκαστος ὅ τι κερδανεῖ: τὸ δὲ κοινόν, ὥσπερ Αἴσιμος κυλίνδεται.
