[1] The headword is present middle/passive participle of kle/ptw, masculine nominative plural: literally 'they being victims of theft'. It must be quoted from somewhere, but not from the quotation given, which has the related noun kle/pths. For the verb and the noun, see also kappa 1737, kappa 1738.
[2] Adler attributes this quotation either to Aelian or to Symeon Metaphrastes. Perhaps, rather Polybius, in whom there is a precise parallel for the phrase 'the faith entrusted to him' (16.22.2).
