Parmeniscus

Athenaeus, Book 4 - 156.C

And the noble Aristophanes, in Cocalus, said: 'But, Daddy, it is high noon already, the time when youngsters should have dinner.' And so, in my opinion, it would be much better to dine in the fashion described by Parmeniscus, in The Cynics' Symposium, than to see as in a fever all these dishes going round here.“
