This guy was legit the first troll.

He and diogenes constantly had several encounters and Diogenes trolled plato every single time or mocked him.

All of the stories we have from Diogenes date from close to 600 years after his death, in Diogenes Laƫrtius' Lives and Opinions of Eminent Philosophers. It's very likely much of it is spurious, designed to give us a simplified understanding of the cynic worldview and philosophy through parable.

He was pretty cool, at least the Diogenes we think existed, but it doesn't matter what the real one was like. Pyrrho of Elis was also mind-blowingly ahead of the curve and came up with a lot of ideas eerily similar to the ones we started to realize in the later 20th century.

Plato, Socrates, and Aristotle are probably the three most overrated philosophers of all time. They should only be studied in critique, as examples of where we once were and why that was flawed. They only became the three representatives of Greek philosophy because their narratives were the most enticing, not because what they thought was actually the closest to reality.

Perhaps but some of this actually did happen. Diogenes always annoyed plato by shitting in his seat and leaving or just eating really really loudly.
