Ah, correction - it was Seneca, Letters to Lucilius, complaining about the baths near which he lived. "Praeter istos, quorum rectae voces sunt, alipilum cogita tenuem et stridulam vocem subinde exprimentem nec umquam tacentem, nisi dum vellit alas et alium pro se clamare cogit."

That decision was easy for me. Beards all the way. When I saw the clean shaved Hercules with Beatles haircut (statue from the Roman era) in Ephesus, I had enough. I said give Hercules back his beard!!!
