τοῦ ἀνθρώπου. “The genitive,” say the Oxford editors, “may be governed by ἐγκρατέστατος or may be taken partitively with ἐντὸς ἄνθρωπος.” The former is the correct view. Stephanus suggested ἐγκρατέστερος: but “quum tria sint quae de imperio contendant, superlativus recte habet” (Schneider). ἐντὸς ἄνθρωπος has been compared with Paul's ἔσω ἄνθρωπος in Rom. 7. 22: cf. also Eph. 3. 16.
