would you say πολλὰ refers purely to the number of the bodies saved σῴζει, and not at all implying a multiple number of bodies being present?
i say this, because i understand σῴζει and σῶμα can mean to lock up?
it is word play that plato makes, Plato, Cratylus, section 400c
and i'm wondering if something similar is happening here
i'm seeing these two images? is the first not possible?
those who remain upright, locked safely as a group of many bodies, with their obedience.
those who make it through, what saves most their lives, is following orders
