γὰρ, prefacing the statement: 915.

τοιούτων, ‘such or such’ a man,— ‘any given kind’ of person:—euphemistic for “δολίων”, or the like. Such a colloquial use of “τοιοῦτος” seems quite intelligible, since it could be interpreted by an expressive tone of the voice, or by a slight gesture. (Not, ‘such as thou hast described.’) It would be grievous to change τοιούτων into πανούργων, as Nauck proposes.

κρίσις, lit., trial, competition ( Tr. 266πρὸς τόξου κρίσιν”): the usual word would be “ἀγών”, but euphony would not permit it here.

μου: see n. on 47.
