1 The text of this passage has been suspected because （a） the words δι᾽ ἃ are difficult to understand; （b） there is no object for ἐπετήδευον. But （a） δι᾽ ἃ can be taken to refer to what follows in this sense: “Moreover,— and here is the justification for their conduct,—you alone know, etc.”; （b） although επιτηδεύω normally takes an object, at least the present participle can be used absolutely. I have therefore ventured to leave the text as it stands.
