Callias, fr. 25 (Clement of Alexandria, Miscellanies 6.12.5)




“When among madmen, it is best to act completely mad.”


μετὰ μαινομένων φάσιν χρῆναι μαίνεσθαι πάντας ὁμοίως


When in Rome? Don’t hate the players hate the game?

Callias was a poet of Old Comedy. And, if you believe Plato, he hung out with Socrates.
