[1] As Adler notes, Bernhardy reckoned that the subject of this (unattributable) quotation is Epameinondas of Thebes (epsilon 1949), who had such an effect on the Spartans in the aftermath of their defeat at Leuktra (371 BCE); see generally Xenophon, Hellenica 6.5.24ff. (web address 1). However, the quotation has already appeared at nu 389 (q.v.).
