ἐς ἀσπίδας ὑπτίας—Aristoph. Lysist. 185 θὲς ἐς τὸ πρόσθεν ὑπτίαν τὴν ἀσπίδα. τούτους—Philistus of Syracuse, a contemporary historian, related that Demosth. attempted to commit suicide, but was prevented by the enemy. The fact is reported by Plutarch and Pausanias. καθῖσε τὴν ς.—observe that Thuc. uses the earlier form of the augment whenever there are two ways of angmenting a verb: e.g. χρῆν, not ἐχρῆν; καθῖζον, not ἐκάθιζον; ἑνηντιούμην, not ἠναντιούμην; see Rutherford New Phryn. p. 81; and for the Attic uses of καθίζω ib. p. 336.
