Vetting Status: high
Translation:
[Beings] responsible for death and destruction.[1] "[...] deeming them [sc. followers of Socrates and Zeno] deserving to be driven from every land and sea, as being causes of death for the cities and the community; but now crowning them with wreaths and making them an example of noble and self-controlled life-style."[2]
Greek Original:
Κῆρας: θανάτου καὶ φθορᾶς αἰτίους. ἀξιῶν αὐτοὺς πάσης ἐλαύνεσθαι γῆς καὶ θαλάττης, ὡς ὄντας κῆρας πόλεών τε καὶ πολιτείας: νῦν δὲ στεφανῶν αὐτοὺς καὶ παράδειγμα τιθέμενος γενναίου βίου καὶ σώφρονος.
Notes:
[1] See also kappa 1530 (and kappa 1532). The present headword is accusative plural, presumably extracted from the quotation given.
[2] Synesius, Dio 1 (PG 66.1117c-d); see already beta 86.
