must be supplied the participial clause of the preceding sentence. From this also we must take a verb of saying to govern a τινάς
also to be supplied from οὐδένα
of the clause τῶν . . . ἔμπροσθεν
: has almost the force of an adj. See Kr. 43, 4, 5; H. 798 f.
οὐ γὰρ ἐξέπεσον
: we find additions, such as ἐκ τῆς πατρίδος, ἀρχῆς, τυραννίδος
, and the like; also δόξης, οὐδίας
(ἐκ τῶν ἐόντων
, Hdt. iii. 14). The verb ἐκπίπτειν
serves thus as a passive to ἐκβάλλειν
, though the image is that of a chariot driver who is thrown out. Cf. the English phrase ‘fall through,’ as applied to a design or project.οὔτε τῃ κολακικῃ
: sc. with which they might have saved themselves, according to Callicles' view (511 c
, 486 b
), but which Pericles despised.
<*>λλὰ μέντοι . . . μή ποτε
: “But yet, the men of the present day are at least far from being able to,” etc.
