[no gloss]

Ἔστι τις δίκης ὀφθαλμός, ἧς μηδέποτε καταφρονεῖν ἀνθρώπους ὑπάρχοντας.

The headword quotes Polybius 23.10.3, where this phrase is called a proverb; cf. delta 1096. For other appearances of it -- most directly Diphilus fr. 136 K.-A. (formerly Philemon fr. 246 Kock) -- see Walbank (below) 230.
