Description

In Greek mythology, Procrustes or "the stretcher", also known as Prokoptas or Damastes "subduer", was a rogue smith and bandit from Attica who physically attacked people by stretching them or cutting off their legs, so as to force them to fit the size of an iron bed.
Procrustean is thus used to describe situations where different lengths or sizes or properties are fitted to an arbitrary standard.
