ἔχει δὲ κοινὸν εἶδος κ.τ.λ.] ‘There is a community of kind’ (the two may be referred to one species, one of the three kinds (εἴδη) of Rhetoric, c. 3. 1, either the συμβουλευτικόν or the ἐπιδεικτικόν, as the occasion requires) ‘between praise and counsel or advice; for anything that you would suggest in advising may, by a mere change in the language, be converted into panegyric’. Quintilian has borrowed this, Inst. Or. III 7. 28, totum autem habet (laudativum genus) aliquid simile suasoriis; quia plerumque eadem illic suaderi hic laudari solent.
