ἀκράτωρ. As O. C. 1236 is the only extant Attic example of “ἀκρατής” as =‘weak,’ so is this the only example of “ἀκράτωρ” in that sense. Plato uses “ἀκράτωρ” in the regular Attic sense of “ἀκρατής” as =impotens sui ( Rep. 579C “ἑαυτοῦ...ἀκράτωρ”). The scholium here (if it be not rather a fusion of two distinct scholia) recognises both meanings: “ἀσθενὴς, ἑαυτοῦ κρατεῖν μὴ δυνάμενος”.
