ῥοπὴ βίου μοι, the turn of the scale (momentum) for my life,—the moment which is to bring it down to death. Cp. O. T. 961 “σμικρὰ παλαιὰ σώματ᾽ εὐνάζει ῥοπή” (where see n.):
, “"but his life still hangs in the trembling scale."” καὶ θέλω θανεῖν μὴ ψεύσας σε πόλιν τε τήνδε (“τούτων”） ἅπερ ξυνῄνεσα, “"and I wish to die without having defrauded thee and this city of the things on which I agreed."” For the constr. of ψεύσας cp. on 1145, and for the chief stress on the partic., 1038: for ξυνῄν., Xen. Cyr. 4.2.47 “ταῦτα συνῄνουν”, they agreed to these terms.
