ὥστ̓: here a connecting particle, as in § 46; cp. the similar use of ὡς, E. 80 and note. τῶν ἀσκητῶν, ‘athletes.’ ἀσκητής, ‘one who practises some trade,’ is used especially of athletes, as in Plat. Rep. 403 E; cp. Hesychius, ἀσκητής, ἀθλητής and ἐπασκηταί, ἀθληταί. οὐδ᾽ ἓν μέρος τιθέασι κτἑ, ‘do not offer a fraction of the prizes for which you kings strive daily.’ For this use of μέρος cp. τὰ δύο μέρη, ‘two-thirds,’ τὰ πέντε μέρη, ‘five-sixths.’ τιθέναι is regularly used of ‘offering’ prizes; cp.
