δῶρα -- βασιλῆας: an old saying attributed by some to Hesiod (οἱ μὲν Ἡσιόδειον οἴονται τὸν στίχον Suidas s. vv. δῶρα κτλ.). It is referred to by Eur. Med. 964 πείθειν δῶρα καὶ θεοὺς λόγος. Cf. Nägelsbach Nachhom. Theol. II p. 64. συμβουλεύων. Il. IX 515 ff. The gentitive μήνιος, for which a few MSS read μήνιδος, is natural in paraphrasing Homer. Cf. the form Θάλεω in X 600 A. οὐδ᾽ ὁμολογήσομεν. “Dele futile interpretamentum” exclaims Hartman. The words are genuine, and add a new point: cf. 391 A φάναι καὶ ἄλλων λεγόντων πείθεσθαι. δῶρα λαβεῖν. Il. XIX 278 ff. Plato is unjust to Achilles: see ib. 147 ff. (J. and C.). τιμὴν κτλ. Il. XXIV 502, 555, 594.
