previous next

‘And those who have often in previous attempts escaped either detection or punishment. And, on the other hand, those who have often failed in their attempts’ (the opposite to the last); ‘because there is a class of people who in such matters as these, as well as in actual fighting, are inclined (have a disposition) to renew the fight’. οἷοι for οἷον is due to Victorius in addendis. Victorius quotes in illustration of this pugnacious character, Problem XVIII 2, de Sophistis, καὶ γὰρ νικῶντες διὰ τὸ χαίρειν προάγονται μᾶλλον ἐρίζειν: καὶ ἡττώμενοι ὡς ἀναμαχούμενοι.
