μείζονι strictly, “more important”: cp. Dem. 19.248 “ἀντὶ ... τῆς πΟͅλεως τὴν Φιλίππου ξενίαν καὶ φιλίαν πολλῷ μείζονα ἡγήσατο αὐτῷ καὶ λυσιτελεστέραν” （alluding to Soph. Ant. 182 “καὶ μείζον᾽ ὅστις ἀντὶ τῆς αὑτοῦ πάτρας ι φίλον νομίζει）”: Soph. Ant. 637 “οὐδεὶς ... γάμος ι μείζον᾽ ὅστις θαι σοῦ καλῶς ἡγουμένου,” no marriage can be a greater prize than your good guidance. The καὶ with λέξαιμ᾽ ἂν: — could I speak? Lys. 12.29 “παρὰ τοῦ ποτε καὶ λήψεσθε δίκην;” from whom will you ever exact satisfaction?
