In Aristophanes' 424 B.C. political satire, Demos, who personifies the Athenian public, has come under the spell of his demagogic slave, himself a personification of the playwright's own arch enemy, the politician Cleon. Two other slaves, Nicias and Demosthenes, themselves symbols of the democratic city state, decide to install a vagabond sausage seller off the streets in Cleon's place. They flatter Demos and turn him against Cleon and tell him that the oracles promise a new golden age for Athens. Beneath the satiric surface and the sexual and scatological imagery, Knights is also a more serious attempt to portray what Aristophanes views as the gullible, wrongly if eternally optimistic Athenian people and their need for a moral regeneration.
