Slender Calves? Oh, the Humanity! Uh . . . the Animality?

The philosopher Simon Critchley, writing an NYT article - "In Aristotle's Garden" - tells us:
"Aristotle had slender calves."
Interesting anecdote, but perhaps Aristotle ought to have fed them better, as he had a large garden, or so the article goes on to inform us.

Update: Link to article.

I found the article, and then clicked the link you provided leading to the many dramatic images of Critchley. After reading the article, I think Mr. Critchley could could enjoy a career as a scarf model.
