[408] εἰ καὶ κ.τ.λ. For εἰ καὶ see on 305.

ἐξισωτέον κ.τ.λ. = δεῖ ἐξισοῦν τὸ γοῦν ἴσα ἀντιλέξαι, one must equalize the right at least of like reply; i.e. you must make me so far your equal as to grant me the right of replying at the same length. The phrase is a pleonastic fusion of (1) ἐξισωτέον τὸ ἀντιλέξαι with (2) συγχωρητέον τὸ ἴσα ἀντιλέξαι.
