The headword phrase has a slightly different adjective in Hesychius, whose (mysterious) gloss is 'the ones [the] Athenians used'. Proverbial in Apostolius 5.97, with the same glossing as here. In Appendix Proverbiorum 1.96 a second sentence of explanation is added: 'applied to those fettered inescapably'.
