"that Saying of Aeschines, that Drunkenness shows the Mind of a Man "
Aeschines (389 – 314 BC) was a Greek statesman. He had a distinguished army career, and moved from the army into politics. He is known for three important speeches: Against Timarchus (
which ended its namesake’s political career), On the False Embassy
, a response to an attack by Demosthenes, and Against Ctesiphon.
These three speeches were called by the ancients "the Three Graces."
