In the first play he produced on his own behalf, Aristophanes launched a violent attack on Cleon, the leading politician of the day, on the whole style of leadership that he represented and on a system which seemed to guarantee that a bad leader could be displaced by a worse. Text with facing translation, commentary and notes.

Alan Sommerstein is Professor of Greek at the University of Nottingham and Director of the ‘Oath in Archaic and Classical Greece’ project. He has published widely on Aeschylus, Aristophanes and other Greek dramatists.
