Headword: *basilei/a
Adler number: beta,148
Translated headword: kingship, sovereignty
Vetting Status: high
Kingship [is] a possession of things held in common, but the people's things [are] not kingship's possession. Therefore the forcible and violent collection of taxes should be hated as tyrannical insolence, but the reasoned and benevolent requests for contributions should be honored as concern for the public welfare.
