δοκεῖς λέγειν φρονούντως περὶ (“τούτων περὶ”) “ὧν λέγεις”. At first sight it is natural to wish, with Herm. , for “δοκεῖς... ὧν λέγεις λέγειν πέρι”. Cp. 1057ἃν λέγῃς λέγων”. But here it is fitting that “λέγειν” should have the prominence of the first place. And the undoubted harshness of the order may be partly excused by observing that “ὧν λέγεις” is practically equiv. to “τούτων”.
