2. Aristophanes, Knights, 1001-1110, 1166-1181, 1186-1187, 1209-1210, 1225-1226, 1263, 1341-1344, 1354, 1391, 178-193, 211-219, 267-268, 274-283, 285-299, 766-768, 781, 788, 792-794, 797-800, 802-819, 832-840, 844-859, 862, 877-880, 891, 927-940, 944, 956-958, 960-1000 (5th cent.

3. Plato, Gorgias, None (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

463a. whether this is the rhetoric which Gorgias practices, for from our argument just now we got no very clear view as to how he conceives it; but what I call rhetoric is a part of a certain business which has nothing fine about it. Gorg. What is that, Socrates? Tell us, without scruple on my account. Soc. It seems to me then, Gorgias, to be a pursuit that is not a matter of art, but showing a shrewd, gallant spirit which has a natural bent for clever dealing with mankind, and I sum up its substance in the name flattery.
4. Thucydides, The History of The Peloponnesian War, 2.65.8-2.65.10 (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

2.65.8. The causes of this are not far to seek. Pericles indeed, by his rank, ability, and known integrity, was enabled to exercise an independent control over the multitude—in short, to lead them instead of being led by them; for as he never sought power by improper means, he was never compelled to flatter them, but, on the contrary, enjoyed so high an estimation that he could afford to anger them by contradiction. 2.65.9. Whenever he saw them unseasonably and insolently elated, he would with a word reduce them to alarm; on the other hand, if they fell victims to a panic, he could at once restore them to confidence. In short, what was nominally a democracy became in his hands government by the first citizen. 2.65.10. With his successors it was different. More on a level with one another, and each grasping at supremacy, they ended by committing even the conduct of state affairs to the whims of the multitude.
