τῶνδ᾽ἐκμάθω τίνας λόγους ἐροῦσιν, learn in regard to these men what they will say; not, learn from them (by speaking to them), since his present object is only to overhear them, unseen. This gen. of connection often goes thus with verbs of perceiving, etc.: Xen. Mem. 3.6.17ἐνθυμοῦ τῶν εἰδότων ὅτι λέγουσι”. Plat. Gorg. 517Cἀγνοοῦντες ἀλλήλων ὅτι λέγομεν”. Distinguish 593ὅταν μάθῃς μου νουθέτει,” when thou hast learnt from me.
