Timon of Athens Characters

The Second Lord is an Athenian gentleman, one of Timon’s innumerable bootlickers, who thinks nothing of simply walking off the street to eat at Timon’s table and receiving rich gifts from him with no more repayment than flattery. 

He refuses to help Timon out in his need, claiming to have no money on hand at the time, and is shocked at Timon’s reaction. He is fatuous and greedy, though unlike some of the other lords, he does show some (extremely faint) concern for Timon’s mental state. He is also aware that Timon’s fortune will not last, and that therefore one had best make the best use of it while one can.
