λόγος, by inverse attraction, instead of an acc. “λόγον” governed by συμβαλοῦ γνώμην as=“συνδιάσκεψαι” (cp. on 223). Cp.

ἐκ γένους δὲ δεῖ θανεῖν
τοῦδ᾽, ὃς δράκοντος γένυος ἐκπέφυκε παῖς

. When the antecedent is thus drawn into the case of the relat., the case is more often the acc.: see on 56τόπον.

λόγος here=a subject for consideration (cp. our “"argument"” in the old sense of “"theme"”).

ἐμπέπτωκεν, has presented itself to me: so Plat. Prot. 314Cπερί τινος λόγου διελεγόμεθα ὃς ἡμῖν κατὰ τὴν ὁδὸν ἐνέπεσεν”.

συμβαλοῦ γνώμην, not "collect your thoughts" (Blaydes), but "contribute your opinion," i.e. help me to decide what should be done. Her. 8.61῾αδειμαντυς ιν τηε ξουνξιλ οφ γρεεκ λεαδερς᾿ πόλιντὸν Θεμιστοκλέα παρεχόμενον οὕτω ἐκέλευε γνώμας συμβάλλεσθαι”, "he said that T. should have a city to represent before he contributed his views." Plat. Polit. 298C῾ιφ ωε σηουλδ δεξιδἐ ξυλλέξαι...ἐκκλησίαν..., ἐξεῖναι δὲ καὶ τῶν ἰδιωτῶν καὶ τῶν ἄλλων δημιουργῶν περί τε πλοῦ καὶ περὶ νόσων γνώμην ξυμβαλέσθαι”.
