I think he was the subject of a lot of jokes too.
I remember in one of Aristophanes’ plays, an Athenian seeing a Spartan, who has been denied sex by his wife, asks if he was a man or Priapus.
Good memory, it’s in Lysistrata, but it’s a joke related to how the women withheld sex to stop a war. Yow, this PD translation is ye olde archaic English translation —
HERALD My scrimp-brained lad, I’m a herald, as ye see, who hae come frae Sparta Anent a Peace.
MAGISTRATE Then why do you hide that lance That sticks out under your arms?
HERALD. I’ve brought no lance.
MAGISTRATE Then why do you turn aside and hold your cloak So far out from your body? Is your groin swollen With stress of travelling?
