Diodotus replies to Cleon. Διόδοτος: of Diodotus, to whom Thucydides has raised in the following speech a splendid monument, nothing is known historically, not even whether his father Eucrates was the στυππειοπώλης among the successors of Pericles (Ar. Eq. 129; cf. CIA. iv. 179 a), or the brother of Nicias. See Roscher, Leben etc. des Thuk. p. 411.—2. ὅσπερ καὶ . . . Μυτιληναίους: cf. c. 36. 25.— ἀντέλεγε . . . μὴ ἀποκτεῖναι Μυτιληναίους: spoke most against putting the Mytileneans to death. Cf. v. 49. 11 ἀντέλεγον μὴ δικαίως σφῶν καταδεδικάσθαι, Xen. Anab. ii. 3. 25; Cyrop. ii. 2. 20. For the inf. with μή after verbs of denial, see GMT. 807; H. 1029; Kr. Spr. 67, 12, 3. SPEECH OF DIODOTUS. c. 42-48.
