οὔτ᾽ εἴ τι κ.τ.λ.: lit., “"if you have used somewhat great (πλέον) length of speech"”: ἔθου=“ἐποιήσω”. Cp. Thuc. 5.89 “οὔτε μετ᾽ ὀνομάτων καλῶν...μῆκος λόγων ἄπιστον παρέξομεν”. τι (adv., O.T. 969) courteously softens the phrase. θαυμάσας ἔχω=“τεθαύμακα”: cp. 817: Plat. Phaedr. 257 C “τὸν λόγον δέ σου πάλαι θαυμάσας ἔχω”, and ib. 258 B “οὐχ ὡς ὑπερφρονοῦντες,...ἀλλ᾽ ὡς τεθαυμακότες”. For the perfect, see on 186 “τέτροφεν”.
