ψέγων ‘Disparaging,’— the exact meaning of the word. It differs from μέμφεσθαι, the former implying the expression of dislike or contempt, the latter the feeling of dissatisfaction, though it so often has the secondary sense of ‘to blame.’

τῶν νόμων κ.τ.λ. An action for κακηγορία could be brought by any one whose father's memory had been unjustly aspersed. [Dem. Or. 20 § 104; Plutarch, Solon, 21; and Lexicon Rhet. Cantab. ἐάν τις κακῶς εἴπῃ τινὰ τῶν κατοιχομένων, κἂν ὑπὸ τῶν ἐκείνου παίδων ἀκούσῃ κακῶς, ὦφλε τῷ δημοσίῳ. S.]

ἀγανακτεῖν i.e. to show his resentment. Construe ἐβλασφήμει περὶ αὐτοῦ.
