A Huckster

Procopius, History of the Wars 2.15.25 (tr. H.B. Dewing):
And there has been set over us as ruler a huckster who has made our destitution a kind of business by virtue of the authority of his office.

ἐφέστηκέ τε ἡμῖν ἄρχων κάπηλος, τὴν ἡμετέραν ἀπορίαν ἐργασίαν τινὰ τῇ τῆς ἀρχῆς ἐξουσίᾳ πεποιημένος.
