ἀντέλεγέ τε οὐδεὶς . . . δεδιὼς κ.τ.λ., as if instead of οὐδεὶς he had said, ‘a man refrained from opposing, because he feared . . .’ So in Latin ‘nemo contradicebat, sed (quisque) timebat,’ etc. εἴ τις καὶ ἀντείποι ‘when anybody did oppose.’ ἐτεθνήκει ‘he was a dead man.’ δικαίωσις lit. ‘a doing of justice’ in regard to him. The scholiast explains by κόλασις ἢ εἰς δίκην ἀπαγωγή, the former of which is, of course, what the sense amounts to. In i. 141 δικαίωσις is a ‘claim’ of right. But δικαίωμα = ‘penalty,’ Plat. Legg. 864 E, and δικαιοῦν = ‘punish,’ Hdt. i. 100. So iii. 40, δικαιώσεσθε ὑμᾶς αὐτούς.
