 At Athens those were "sukophantia" whose business it was to inform
 against any one whom they might detect exporting figs out of Attica;
 and as sometimes they seemed to extort money from those loath to be
 exposed, the name "sukophantes" from the time of Aristophanes down
 was a general term of opprobrium to designate, a malignant and base
 accuser from love of gain.
