Who was Aristophanes?

At the time of Euripides, Aristophanes lived in Athens about 450-388 B.C. Aristophanes wrote comedies instead of tragedies. Most of Aristophanes' plays are political satires. They make fun of the politicians of Athens, sometimes in general, and sometimes mocking one specific politician. Lysistrata, one of his plays, poked fun at the generals who would not end the Peloponnesian War, and said that women could do a better job making peace.
