Vetting Status: high
[Meaning they who are] harvesting.
Also [sc. attested is] a)mw=sin ["they reap"] similarly.[2]
Aristophanes [writes]: "reaping these ears of other people's corn, he's put them in the stocks and is drying them out and wants to sell them". That is Cleon, enjoying the fruit of other people's labours.[3]

The primary headword, which has the same or similar glossing in other lexica, is present middle participle, masculine nominative plural, of LSJ's a)ma/w (A); evidently quoted from somewhere. (It is part of Comica adespota 436 Kock, but Kassel-Austin exclude the item.)
cf. generally alpha 1579, alpha 1582, alpha 1583.
[2] Also quoted from somewhere; again, perhaps, from comedy (Aristophanes fr. 569.6 Kock, now 581.6 Kassel-Austin).
[3] Aristophanes, Knights 392-3 (carelessly quoted: the final verb should be bou/letai, as translated here, not le/getai; at alpha 4565 it is correct), with scholion. The reference is to the Spartan prisoners taken at Sphacteria in 425 BC, a success for which Cleon took the credit due (according to Aristophanes) to Demosthenes. See kappa 1731.
