So Theramenes[1] met a death worthy of his life, after Kritias had condemned him.{2]
Greek Original:
*kri/tios: toiga/rtoi th=s tou= bi/ou proaire/sews e)paci/ws e)/tuxen o( *qhrame/nhs th=s teleuth=s, *kriti/ou kri/nantos au)to/n.
(Entry lacking, Adler reports, in mss AFV.)
An abridged version of a sentence from delta 234, q.v. Unfortunately, the second proper name, in the genitive case *kriti/ou, has produced, as headword here, the wrong nominative: it should be not 'Kritios' (attested as the name of an Athenian sculptor in bronze: see e.g. Pausanias 1.8.5; A.F. Stewart in OCD(4) s.v. Critius, p. 394) but Kritias.
[1] For Theramenes, cf. theta 342, kappa 1909, and delta 234 n.2.
[2] For the Athenian aristocrat Kritias (Critias, c.460-403 BCE) -- politician, right-wing intellectual, and uncle of Plato -- see generally Michael Gagarin in OCD(4) s.v. Critias, p. 394).
