παντὶ γὰρ -- ἐντυγχάνειν. A slight exaggeration: see 461 D, E notes Cf. Hdt. IV 104 ἐπίκοινον δὲ τῶν γυναικῶν τὴν μῖξιν ποιεῦνται (οἱ Ἀγάθυρσοι), ἵνα κασίγνητοί τε ἀλλήλων ἔωσι καὶ οἰκήιοι ἐόντες πάντες μήτε φθόνῳ μήτε ἔχθει χρέωνται ἐς ἀλλήλους and ib. 180 ad fin. Similar motives for domestic communism are mentioned by Diod. Sic. II 58. See also, for other traces, whether real or legendary, of community of wives and children in antiquity Xanthus Fr. 28, Ephorus Fr. 76 and Theopompus Fr. 222 (in Müller Frag. Hist. Gr. Vol. I), together with Arist. Pol. B 3. 1262^{a} 19.
