Aristophanes in Lysistrata [writes]: this man "fleeing a marriage sought solitude and lived in the mountains, and kept a dog, and then hunted hares [...], and no longer went home because of hatred, so much did he abominate women; and we [do so] no less, more restrained than Melanion."
Greek Original:
Μελανίωνος σωφρονέστερος: Ἀριστοφάνης Λυσιστράτῃ: οὗτος φεύγων γάμον ἀφίκετ' ἐς ἐρημίαν κἀν τοῖς ὄρεσιν ᾤκει, καὶ κύνα τιν' εἶχε, κᾆτ' ἐλαγοθήρει, κοὐκ ἔτ' ἦλθεν οἴκαδ' ὑπὸ μίσους. οὕτω τὰς γυναῖκας ἐβδελύχθη ἐκεῖνος: ἡμεῖς δ' οὐδὲν ἧττον τοῦ Μελανίωνος σωφρονέστεροι.
