μελέτω σοι τοῦ πλήθους: Evagoras is praised (E. 46) as δημοτικὸς ὢν τῇ τοῦ πλήθους θεραπείᾳ. κεχαρισμένως αὐτοῖς ἄρχειν, ‘to rule in a manner which is acceptable to them.’ αὐτοῖς is to be taken closely with κεχαρις μένως. For the adverbs formed from participles cp. ἐρρωμενεστέρως (§ 14) and see note on E. 43 πεπλανημένως. For the sentiment cp. Corn. Nep. x. 5 nullum imperium tutum nisi benevolentia munitum, and Claudian, de iv cons. Hon. v. 281 non sic excubiae non circumstantia pila | quam tutatur amor.
