καὶ μάλα ζωτικὸν κτλ. Glauco is thin<*>ing of the extreme activity and vitality s<*>metimes displayed by the more aggressive kind of villain. A good example is f<*>nished by the career of Dionysius I of Syracuse. With ἄγρυπνον Stallbaum compares “ut iugulent homines surgunt de no<*> latrones” (Hor. Epp. I 2. 32)—an insta<*>ce on a small and petty scale of the sort of thing which is in Plato's mind.
