A play by Eupolis in which the demagogue Hyperbolus was caricatured as a barbarian slave, and his mother apparently as a drunken market-woman; the chorus was divided into semichoruses of rich and poor men. Aristophanes alleged that Eupolis had plagiarized his Knights. Part of an ancient commentary survives, but the plot is hard to reconstruct.
