The date of composition of Eupolis’ comedy Demoi is a matter of discussion: after a critical review of the evidence, a dating between 417 and 414 is to be rejected in favour of the years immediately before or after the coup d’e´tat of the Four Hundred. The traditional 412 dating appears probably the best. In Fr. 17 Telo` = 99 Kassel-Austin, the mention of hetaireiai is particularly significant in the perspective of the incipient oligarchic coup of 411. Moreover, the portrait of a demagogue combining radical democratic features with oligarchic elitarian ones perfectly fits into that prevailing climate of political transformism. Identification of this figure is quite problematic; however, the name of Dieitrephes could be cautiously suggested. Interestingly, the same fragment also includes a mention of Solon, a key figure in the oligarchs’ political propaganda, but here portrayed in a quite different way, as a democratic lawgiver. Eupolis possibly intended to contrast the image of Solon diffused by the conspirators.
