Adler number: kappa,1026
Translated headword: passions for my poleis control
Vetting Status: high
"Men" is implicit. Meaning that men are passionate about my polis.
Greek Original:
*kate/xousi d' e)/rwtes e)ma\s po/leis: lei/pei a)nqrw/pous. a)nti\ tou= e)rw=sin oi( a)/nqrwpoi th=s e)mh=s po/lews.
The headword is a quotation of Aristophanes, Birds 1316 (where the genitive singular po/lews is read rather than the Suda's po/leis: see web address 1), and the substance of the entry comes from the scholia thereto.
On the verb kate/xein as either intransitive or, as here, transitive (with "men" understood) see Dunbar (below) 648.
Aristophanes, Birds, edited with introduction and commentary by Nan Dunbar (Oxford 1995)
