"They rebelled against their alliance with him, and they wanted to bear witness to this in some way; this is the reason why they pulled down the statue of Philip that was dedicated as an offering."[2]

*)afhniasth/s: a)nupo/taktos, u(perh/fanos. oi( de\ a)fhni/asan me\n au)to\n th=s fili/as, e)boulh/qhsan de\ diamartu/rasqai tou=to tro/pon tina/. th\n gou=n ei)ko/na *fili/ppou, w(s a)na/qhma keime/nhn, kate/spasan.
[1] The headword noun literally means one refusing to obey the reins, the h(ni/a; thus properly of horses, but by extension of anything or anyone.
[2] This quotation, illustrating the cognate verb (already at alpha 4605, and again at eta 664), partially reappears under delta 647 but it is unidentifiable; so, therefore, is the king "Philip" in question.
