Translated headword: if you abominate at all the crests and eyebrows of Peisandros
Vetting Status: high
This man was subject to much public criticism for cowardice. He was bellicose and belligerent for reasons of private gain. But he was also a coward. He used to wear a triple crest and distinctive armour, with the aim of seeming brave, but not being [so]. [Aristophanes] attacks him savagely in other respects too.
Greek Original:
Εἴ τι Πεισάνδρου βδελύττῃ τοὺς λόφους καὶ τὰς ὀφρῦς: οὗτος ἐπὶ δειλίας ἐσκώπτετο παρὰ τοῖς πολλοῖς. φιλοπόλεμος δὲ ἦν καὶ πολεμοποιὸς κερδῶν ἰδίων ἕνεκεν. ἦν δὲ καὶ δειλός. ἐχρῆτο δὲ τριλοφίᾳ καὶ ὅπλοις ἐπισήμοις, ὑπὲρ τοῦ δοκεῖν ἀνδρεῖος εἶναι, μὴ ὤν. καὶ ἐν ἄλλοις ἐπαχθῶς αὐτοῦ ἐπιλαμβάνεται.
