One of Aristophanes’ most explicitly anti-war comedies. Dikaiopolis, an elderly farmer frustrated with the ongoing Peloponnesian War and the inability of the Polis to take action, resolves to take matters into his own hands. Accordingly, he sends a message to the Spartans, making an offer of peace. Eventually, he finds himself on the run from the belligerent Acharnians, who wish to take revenge against the Spartans, but also from general Lamachus, shortly before the latter sets out for the battlefield. Will Dikaiopolis succeed in convincing them all about the benefits of peace?
