Thucydides [writes]: "[the Athenians] both built up and organized the empire on a stronger basis, and they themselves advanced to greatness of power".[1]
Greek Original:
*)egkrate/steros. *qoukudi/dhs: th/n te a)rxh\n e)gkrateste/ran e)poi/hsan kai\ katesth/santo, kai\ au)toi\ e)pi\ me/ga duna/mews e)xw/rhsan.
The unglossed headword, masculine nominative singular of the comparative degree of the adjective e)gkrath/s (epsilon 126), is presumably generated by the corresponding feminine accusative singular in the passage quoted (though cf., e.g., under zeta 79).
[1] An approximation of Thucydides 1.118.2 (web address 1), on the Pentekontaetia. (The received text of Thucydides does not include e)poi/hsan [here "built up"] kai/; it also transmits the final two words in the order e)xw/rhsan duna/mews.)
