Meaning [he/she/it] is in.[1] Aristophanes [writes]: "if I should not destroy you, if none of the same falsehoods might be in me, may I perish altogether." In effect, may I fail in my hope, if I were not to destroy you, if you were to answer any of my falsehoods. Since he, the sausage-seller, seemed himself to surpass him[2] in counter-lies. Alternatively [interpreted]: if any of my lies is saved, that is, of those which are in me. If I have not destroyed the lying, may I perish altogether, if I do not make you outside humankind.
