‘And seeing that this ambition of rivalry is (especially) directed against (pointed at) our competitors in some struggle or encounter (i. e. any ἀγών, in which there are ἀγωνισταί or ‘combatants’: law suits, battles, games, and such like), or in love (rivalry proper), or generally against those who are aiming at the same things, these must necessarily be the chief objects of envy: whence the saying “two of a trade”. See supra II 4. 21, I 11. 25. Hesiod. Op. et D. 25, καὶ κεραμεὺς κεραμεῖ κοτέει καὶ τέκτονι τέκτων.
