The extraordinary effect which Alcibiades’ rejection of the aulos has on the other boys and on public opinion generally prefigures his later popularity and influence, and demonstrates the effectiveness of his speech and his charisma” (Duff, “Plutarch on the Childhood of Alkibiades”, 104). 59. Alcibiades’ son was to adopt both his father’s gait and mode of speech: κλασαυχενεύεται τε καὶ τραυλίζεται (“he bends his neck in an affected way and pronounces rho as lambda”: Archipp. ap. Plut.
