The present paper studies adjectives and participles with good or bad meanings used with ανηρ and ανρωπος by Attic orators in the fourth century BC. It appears that most of the adjectives and participles used with ανηρ give this noun good connotation, whereas most of those used with ανρωπος give it bad connotation. Indeed, the orators often use the commonplace αγαος ανηρ and καλος καγαος ανηρ other adjectives and participles also confirm that ανηρ is perceived as “good man”, whereas ανρωπος is most of the time perceived as “bad man”. Even without such words, ανηρ can be most of the time understood as “good man”, whereas ανρωπος alone can be understood more often as “bad individual”. The final part of the paper suggests ways to explain this fact.
