The Greek Theatre Mask of Polymestor Blinded in Hecuba is described as follows:
Hecuba exploits his greed to lure him into the tent, where he is blinded and his children are murdered, he re-enters in an undignified, unrestrained posture and sings an “unmanly” and emotional song of distress. Given a chance to accuse Hecuba before the (prejudiced) Agamemnon, he returns to cynical lying.
