δοκεῖν “to seem,” sc. εὐδαιμονεῖν: not absol., “to have reputation,” a sense which οἱ δοκοῦντες, τὰ δοκοῦντα can sometimes bear in direct antithesis to οἱ ἀδοξοῦντες or the like （Eur. Hec. 291 etc.） Cp. Eur. Her. 865 “τὸν εὐτυχεῖν δοκοῦντα μὴ ζηλοῦν πρὶν ἂν ι θανόντ᾽ ἴδῃ τις”: Soph. Aj. 125 “ὁρῶ γὰρ ἡμᾶς οὐδὲν ὄντας ἅλλο πλὴν ι εἴδωλ᾽ ὅσοιπερ ζῶμεν ἢ κούφην σκιάν.”
