Because he was as mad as a march hare and a local celebrity. He was basically antiquity's equivalent to Emperor Norton.

Diogones was literally just some fucking loud crazy hobo who with zero inhibition who sometimes had some 2deep4u shit to spout. Those are a fucking dime a dozen in any major city these days, and nobody pays them any mind.

What the fuck happened.

Kind off reminds me how in empire earth, once you advanced to the modern era your prophets would go from dudes in fancy robes to crazy conspiracy nuts

DIOGENES NEVER EXISTED, HE WAS INVENTED HUNDREDS OF YEARS AFTER THE FACT BY ROMANS TO PROVIDE A COUNTEREXAMPLE TO THE PHILOSOPHY OF PLATO AND SOCRATES. THERE IS LITERALLY NO EVIDENCE ANYTHING THAT HE SUPPOSEDLY DID EVER HAPPENED, THERE IS PLENTY OF CONTEMPORARY EVIDENCE TO SUGGEST PLATO AND SOCRATES DID EXIST. HE IS LITERALLY A MEME PHILOSOPHER.
>>
>>277223

Can you substantiate those claims? What physical evidence is there for Socrates existence, aside from Platons work?

>>277280
Xenephon also writes about him, and he is mentioned in contemporary Greek plays. There is literally no written evidence of Diogenes until hundreds of years after his death.

>>277316
Diogenes is definitely a historical character, but he was invented by others hundreds of years later. Please show me the earliest source/reference to Diogenes and his encounter with Alexander the Great, for example.
>>
>>276440
>>276773
Also worth noting that the population of a city was much smaller then than it is now so it was probably easier to keep track of everyone.

>If I were not Alexander, I should wish to be Diogenes
Shouldn't omit his comeback:
"If I were not Diogenes, then I should also wish to be Diogenes."
>>
>>276163
I visited his city (Sinop)
everyone there is related to him
i learned that because of their autistic actions, and party's they voted for.
