Quotes by Aristophanes

About Aristophanes:

Aristophanes is possible that the case was argued in court but details of the trial are not recorded and Aristophanes caricatured Cleon mercilessly in his subsequent plays, especially The Knights, the first of many plays that he directed himself. "In my opinion," he says through the Chorus in that play, "the author-director of comedies has the hardest job of all." (????????????????? ????? ??????????? ????? ???????)
