Headword: Κατέχουσι δ' ἔρωτες ἐμὰς πόλεις
Adler number: kappa,1026
Translated headword: passions for my poleis control
Vetting Status: high
"Men" is implicit. Meaning that men are passionate about my polis.
Greek Original:
Κατέχουσι δ' ἔρωτες ἐμὰς πόλεις: λείπει ἀνθρώπους. ἀντὶ τοῦ ἐρῶσιν οἱ ἄνθρωποι τῆς ἐμῆς πόλεως.
The headword is a quotation of Aristophanes, Birds 1316 (where the genitive singular πόλεως is read rather than the Suda's πόλεις : see web address 1), and the substance of the entry comes from the scholia thereto.
On the verb κατέχειν as either intransitive or, as here, transitive (with "men" understood) see Dunbar (below) 648.
Aristophanes, Birds, edited with introduction and commentary by Nan Dunbar (Oxford 1995)
