'Such was the passion of the ancients for extravagant luxury that not only employed wine-pourers but also wine checkers. And with the Athenians, wine checkers was an administrative office, which is documented by Eupolis in his treatise Regarding Cities The persons who would not be even be wine checkers in the past, now are elected generals. Oh polis, polis, you are more jubilant than wise.' From Atheneus' The Learned Banqueters. Book 10:425(a-b).
