δειλά, as involving mean treachery towards king and city. Theognis 835 “ἀλλ᾽ ἀνδρῶν τε βίῃ καὶ κέρδεα δειλὰ καὶ ὕβρις ι πολλῶν ἐξ ἀγαθῶν ἐς κακότητ᾽ ἔβαλεν” (sc. “ἡμᾶς”). δεινά (L) is defended by Seyffert as=‘flagitious,’ by Whitelaw as=‘clever’ (iron.), ‘your wondrous winnings.’ In some forms of minuscule writing “λ” and “ν” could easily be confused: cp. O. T. 1130 “ξυναλλάξας”, where the first “λ” has been made from ν: and O. C. 1164, where “μόνον” has been restored from “μολόντ᾽”.
