[28] And things that are peculiar to them, or which no one else possesses,1 or which are out of the common; for thus the honor is greater. And things which are appropriate to them; such are all things befitting them in respect of birth and power. And things which they think they lack, however unimportant; for none the less they deliberately choose to acquire them.

1 “Or which no one else has done” (Jebb).
