ἡ τῶν ἐμῶν λόγων κοπίς -> the cleaver of my speeches
D.ap.Plu.Phoc.5

Political Precepts cites Demosthenes’ comment that Phocion was the “cleaver of his speeches” (ἡ τῶν ἐμῶν λόγων κοπίς) (803E) and Phocion’s comment that Leosthenes victory was “good for the short course; but it is the long course which I fear in the war” (καλὸν τὸ στάδιον εἶναι, δεδιέναι δὲ τοῦ πολέμου τὸν δόλιχον) (803B)
