When men drink, then they are rich and successful and win lawsuits and are happy and help their friends. Quickly, bring me a beaker of wine, so that I may wet my mind and say something clever.–Aristophanes, 424 BC

Aristophanes was a Greek comic writer and the son of Philippus. Most of his plays were political satires highlighting the troubles in Athens during that period. Many were performed at festivals, and were watched and voted for by the people. Unfortunately, out of the 40 plays he wrote, only 11 survive today.
