Note:
"To undermine the people", which can also bear the sense of "to destroy the democracy", was the generic crime which could justify an impeachment (eisangelia) in classical Athens (cf. epsiloniota 220, epsiloniota 221, epsiloniota 222). This entry comes from a scholion on Aristophanes, Ecclesiazusae 453.
