οὐδὲ τὸν Φορμίωνα ‘Nor is Phormio's position unknown to him.’ Kennedy. For the double negation, see on § 22. Though Phormion was once the slave of one who was himself a slave of the father of Antimachus, the latter, who is well aware how Phormion has risen, does not grudge him his success and does not hold himself aggrieved by him.—ὁρᾷ, § 50 and 23 § 100 ἤδη δέ τινα εἶδον.— ἐκείνῳ, to Antimachus.

ἀγνωμοσύνης ‘Heartlessness,’ ‘want of proper feeling’; ‘churlishness.’ Or. 54 § 14 ἀγνώμονας καὶ πικρούς. Or. 14 § 5; 18 §§ 207, 252: 60 § 20. [The polite Greeks had many terms of this kind, ἀγροικία, σκαιότης, ἀμαθία, ἀπαιδευσία, ἀπειροκαλία. P.]
