[4] 1. διὰ κινδύνων — with ἔχειν=ἐπικινδύνως. Classen constructs τό with πλέον, to which it is objected that πλέον ἔχειν, not τὸ πλέον ἔχειν=πλεονεκτεῖν, be grasping; and hence Cl. proposed τι for τό. But διὰ ... ἔχειν is a combination of two phrases:

(1) διὰ κινδύνων τὴν δύναμιν ἔχειν,

(2) διὰ κινδύνων πλέον ἔχειν.

For (1) cf. vii. 8 τὸ στρατόπεδον διὰ φυλακῆς μᾶλλον δι᾽ ἑκουσίων κινδύνων ἔχων. The art. before πλέον is occasioned by the preceding δύναμις. Stahl constructs τό with ἔχειν, but the position of the two members outside the article—τῷ ... ἐπαρθέντας and διὰ κ.—is against this.
