Προπίνει: διὰ τοῦ οἴνου τιμᾷ καὶ προδίδωσι. καὶ Δημοσθένης δὲ τοὺς προδόντας τὰς πατρίδας τοῖς ἐχθροῖς προπίνειν ἔφη τοῖς ἐχθροῖς. καὶ Ἀριστοφάνης: φέρ' ἴδω, τί μέντοι πρῶτον ἦν; ἐπίνομεν. τί δὲ μετὰ τοῦτο δεύτερον; προὐπίνομεν. ἀντὶ τοῦ ἀλλήλους δεξιούμεθα. καὶ αὖθις: ταῖς θυγατράσι φάρμακον ὤρεξε καὶ αὐτὸς ἔπιε, δυστυχοῦς κοινωνήσας προπόσεως καὶ φιλοτησίας.
