Timon of Phlius has yet to receive his full due within the broad context of Greek intellectual history and literary study. Those who may have little or no interest in early Pyrrhonism are missing a lot if they are unfamiliar with Timon's extremely artful parodies of Homer and his Aristophanic versatility in coining new words. The neglect of Timon was the more surprising because his subject matter, the philosophy of Pyrrho, has never been short of attention. The study of Pyrrho must begin with the study of Timon; he stands even closer to Pyrrho than does Plato to Socrates.
