Thucydides [writes]: "[the Athenians] both built up and organized the empire on a stronger basis, and they themselves advanced to greatness of power".[1]
Greek Original:
Ἐγκρατέστερος. Θουκυδίδης: τήν τε ἀρχὴν ἐγκρατεστέραν ἐποίησαν καὶ κατεστήσαντο, καὶ αὐτοὶ ἐπὶ μέγα δυνάμεως ἐχώρησαν.
The unglossed headword, masculine nominative singular of the comparative degree of the adjective ἐγκρατής (epsilon 126), is presumably generated by the corresponding feminine accusative singular in the passage quoted (though cf., e.g., under zeta 79).
[1] An approximation of Thucydides 1.118.2 (web address 1), on the Pentekontaetia. (The received text of Thucydides does not include ἐποίησαν [here "built up"] καί ; it also transmits the final two words in the order ἐχώρησαν δυνάμεως .)
