SOPHIST WALLOPS HAUGHTY HELEN SQUARE ON PROBOSCIS. SPARTANS GNASH MOLARS. ITACANS VOW PEN IS CHAMP
-You remind me of Antisthenes, the professor said, a disciple of Gorgias, the sophist.It is said of him that none could tell if he were bitterer against others or against himself.He was the son of a noble and a bondwoman. And he wrote a book in which he took away the palm of beauty from Argive Helen and handed it to poor Penelope.
