[230] ἄλλον ... ἐξ ἄλλης χθονὸς “another [i.e. other than one of yourselves, the Thebans] from a strange land”: an alien, whether resident at Thebes, or not: cp. 451 οὗτός ἐστιν ἐνθάδε, ξένος λόγῳ μέτοικος. The cases contemplated in the proclamation (223-235) are (1) a Theban denouncing another Theban, (2) a Theban denouncing himself, (3) a Theban denouncing an alien.
