ὑπεξαιρεῖν. For the corruption ὑπεξαίρειν (cr. n.) cf. Xen. Hiero 5. 2 ὅταν δὲ τοὺς τοιούτους—ὑπεξαιρῶνται (J. G. Schneider's conjecture for ὑπεξαίρωνται of the MSS). On this passage the poet Gray remarks: “Compare this description with the Hiero of Xenophon: it is in almost every step a picture of the politicks and way of life of the elder Dionysius.” ἕως ἂν μήτε φίλων κτλ. There is no solitude or desolation like the tyrant's: for he is the enemy of the whole human race. See the passages quoted by Nägelsbach Nachhom. Theol. p. 304.
