This article deals with the much-debated problem of the meaning and reference of the metaphor of the fox in line 5. Philological, historical and literary arguments are marshalled in an attempt to understand the metaphor and its significance in the fragment/poem as a whole. The conclusions reached are that the metaphor signifies that the Athenians, rather than being cunning, have been tricked by a 'fox', and that this 'fox' is a tyrant, probably Peisistratus.
