Headword: Οὓς ἐγὼ βόσκω, καὶ δίκαια κἄδικα
Adler number: omicron,960
Translated headword: whom I feed myself -- both right and wrong
Vetting Status: high
Kleon is speaking to the Heliasts. That is, to the jurors of the Heliaia. The [verb] "I feed" [is used] bitterly; for it applies to the irrational. "Right and wrong" stands for justly and unjustly.
Greek Original:
Οὓς ἐγὼ βόσκω, καὶ δίκαια κἄδικα: ὁ Κλέων φησὶ πρὸς τοὺς Ἡλιαστάς. τουτέστι πρὸς τοὺς Ἡλιαίας δικαστάς. τὸ βόσκω πικρῶς: ἐπὶ γὰρ τῶν ἀλόγων εἴρηται. δίκαια δὲ κἄδικα, ἀντὶ τοῦ ἐκδικῶν καὶ ἀδικῶν.
Aristophanes, Knights 256 (here abbreviated: see web address 1), with comment from the scholia there. For Kleon see generally kappa 1731.
