Aglaos.
 
The poorest man in Arcadia, pronounced by Apollo to be far happier than Gygs, because he was “contented with his lot.”   1
       
“Poor and content is rich and rich enough;
But riches endless are as poor as winter
To him who ever fears he shall be poor.”
       
Shakespeare: Othello iii. 3.
