Greek Original:
Δῆμος: παρὰ Ἀριστοφάνει ἡ κώμη. ἢ ἡ νῆσος. σημαίνει δὲ καὶ τὸν τῶν Ἀθηναίων δῆμον. ἕκτῳ σ' ἔτει προσεῖπον ἐς τὸν δῆμον ἐλθών.
Notes:
[1] The reference to an island, here and also (according to Adler) in the Ambrosian Lexicon, is obscure.
[2] Aristophanes, Acharnians 266. (The 'sixth year' dates from the beginning of the Peloponnesian War, 431 BCE.) The meaning of demos here is village, i.e. it illustrates not the meaning just given but the initial one.
