[Meaning] foreigners, and seducers. Demokles [was] such a man.
Greek Original:

The headword *dhmoklei/das (accusative plural, as are the accompanying glosses) is generally understood to be an unattributable quotation from comedy (Comica adespota fr. 71 Kock, now 311 Kassel-Austin).
Demokles is possibly the parasite mentioned in Athenaeus, Deipnosophists 13.584F (13.48 Kaibel), though the name is far too common to be certain of this.
