Headword: *ta\ tw=n fo/rwn krei/ttw
Adler number: tau,153
Translated headword: [profit] greater than the costs
Vetting Status: high
A proverb said against those profiting more from their crimes.
Greek Original:
*ta\ tw=n fo/rwn krei/ttw: paroimi/a e)sti\ legome/nh kata\ tw=n plei/w ferome/nwn w(=n h)di/khsan.
From Harpokration (and Photius) s.v., where -- in what is Hyperides fr. 1 Jensen -- editors have rightly adopted Kiessling's emendation from fo/rwn to fwrw=n. This utterly changes the meaning: the lot of thieves (is) better.
Keywords: daily life; economics; ethics; proverbs; rhetoric
