διαβάλλοντες τῇ πόλει: ‘by setting the citizens against him’ (J. and C.) rather than ‘by accusing him to the State’ (D. and V.). Cf. VI 498 C and Phaed. 67 E.

βιαίῳ -- λάθρᾳ. Cf. Thuc. VIII 65. 2.

αἵτημα τὸ πολυθρύλητον: as in the case of Theagenes of Megara, Pisistratus, and Dionysius of Syracuse: see Arist. Rhet. I 2. 1357^{b} 30—33 with Cope ad loc., and (for Dionysius) Grote X pp. 202 ff. and Freeman's Sicily III p. 558. Gilbert (Gr. Staatsalt. II p. 281 note 1) remarks that the body-guard plays a part in the genesis of nearly every Tyrannis.
