The answer is the ichneumon that steals the eggs of the crocodiles, breaks them open, and eats them before they hatch. 71) described the hippopotamus, but incorrectly. Alexis (204) includes it in a list of apparitions from a dream. 73) recounts the picture of the phoenix that he saw at Heliopolis and the story of its reappearance every five hundred years. Eubulus wrote a comedy entitled Phoenix (114) and mentions, by way of comparison, that even the peacock is admired for its rarity. Antiphanes (Homopatrii 175) recites the various birds that are associated with templesowls with Athens, doves with Aphrodite on Cyprus, the peacocks of Hera on Samos, and the phoenix of Heliopolis.
What we can glean from later comedy is only a highly literary use of the same material. We cannot determine, much less claim, that what we read in Menander or Philemon represents the thinking of the average man or the normal state of affairs in Athens. We cannot take Menander as a concrete representation of his society in the way that we can take Aristophanes as a representative of his. For this reason, and also because most of the historical material about barbarians that can be won from comedy has long since been gleaned, the treatment in this book is largely literary, that is, it seeks not to see what we can tell about the actual, real barbarian and his treatment by the Greeks, but to see what use the comedians made of Page xii non-Greek material and what sort of barbarian characters they introduced.

Ctesias (FGrH 688 F 41) described another Persian garment, the sarapis, an off-white cloakor, perhaps, Page 11 trousersthat Antiphanes (Scythotaurians 201) describes a group as putting on inappropriately along with the chiton. 11 The comedians also refer to the impressive royal costume of the Persian kings, as when Antiphanes (Anteia 36) mentions the donning of tragic raiment, Persian trousers, and tiaras.
