Aristophanes [writes]: "for now these seem to me to smell of bigger and greater matters; and most of all I catch the scent of the tyranny of Hippias."[1] This man was a tyrant, who made the Athenians wear katonakai, so that they would not be able to bring their hands forward.[2] But the Lacedaemonians stoned him to death.[3] There being 4 sons of Peisistratos, Hippias was older than the others and [sc. therefore] set up a tyranny.

[1] Aristophanes, Lysistrata 617-619 (web address 1), with scholion. The headword infinitive is extracted from the quotation.
[2] On the katwna/kh, see kappa 1114.
[3] Untrue (see generally iota 544, iota 545); Adler notes the suggestion -- now orthodox -- by 'Meurs[ius]' (Jan de Meurs, 1579-1639) that the transmitted verb kate/leusan should be kate/lusan.
