ἐγκύψαντες . τοιαῦτα γὰρ τὰ τῶν ἄγαν φροντιζόντων καὶ περὶ τὴν διάνοιαν ἐχόντων σχήματα (Schol. on Ar. Clouds 191). A comparison with IX 586 A κάτω ἀεὶ βλέποντες καὶ κεκυφότες εἰς γῆν suggests that the stoop of the χρηματιστής in reality betrays the inherent earthliness of his soul: see on VII 519 A, B and cf. Dante Purg. 19. 70—72.
