Greek Original:
Κρουσιδημῶν: κατακρούων τῇ βοῇ: ἢ τὸν δῆμον ἀπατῶν καὶ παρακρουόμενος τῇ βοῇ. ἔστι δὲ παρακρουσόμενον, ὃ λέγεται ἐπὶ τῶν τοῖς μέτροις παραλογιζομένων.
From Aristophanes, Knights 859 (web address 1), with comments from the scholia; spoken by Demos himself in reference to Kleon (kappa 1731); cf. sigma 1304.
cf. Hesychius kappa4233; Photius, Lexicon kappa1118 Theodoridis.
[1] This quasi-repetition of the participle from the previous sentence (but now future rather than present) is apparently a mistake for what is found in the scholia: ἔστι δὲ παρὰ κρουσιμετρεῖν ('it is from "knocking off the measurement"').
