θέλεις τι μεῖζον, sc. “ποιεῖν”,— not that “θέλω” could not take a simple acc., but a Greek would mentally supply a general inf. to balance “κατακτεῖναι”: cp. Thuc. 3.85 “ἀπόγνοια...τοῦ ἄλλο τι” (sc. “ποιεῖν”) “ἢ κρατεῖν τῆς γῆς.” ἑλών: cp. O. T. 641 “κτεῖναι λαβών.” ἐγὼ μὲν οὐδέν. He desires nothing more,—and will take nothing less. ἅπαντ᾽ ἔχω: cp. Eur. Or. 749 “τοῦτο πάντ᾽ ἔχω μαθών” (‘tell me that, and I am satisfied’).
