ἕδραις κτλ. ἕδρῃ τε κρέασίν τε ἰδὲ πλείοις δεπάεσσιν in Il. VIII 162 al.

στρατείας: not of course στρατιᾶς (Herwerden), for στρατιά is ‘army,’ στρατεία ‘campaign.’

τοῦ χρυσοῦ γένους. III 415 A. Cf. Heracl. Fr. 102 ed. Bywater ἀρηιφάτους θεοὶ τιμῶσι καὶ ἄνθρωποι.

τοῦ τοιούτου γένους. Plato compares his ‘golden citizens’ with the heroes of the Hesiodic golden age. He would fain surround them with some of the romantic and religious sentiment that clung around the golden age of Greek poetry and legend.
