δοκοῦντ᾽ ἐμοί: this is the acc. neut. plur. (not acc. sing. agreeing with “λόγον”), and answers the question “τίνος χάριν”,...the partic. having a causal force: ‘I speak because these things seem good to me,’ etc. (Cp. Aesch. Theb. 1005“δοκοῦντα καὶ δόξαντ᾽ ἀπαγγέλλειν με χρὴ ι δῆμου προβούλοις κ.τ.λ.”） δοκοῦντα δ̓ (“ἐκείνῳ”) ὃς κραίνει στρατοῦ: for the omission of the antecedent in dative, cp. El. 1123“δόθ̓, ἥτις ἐστί, προσφέροντες”: Ant. 35“ὃς ἃν τούτων τι δρᾷ”, | “φόνον προκεῖσθαι”.—The full expression would be, “δοκοῦντα μὲν ἐμοί, δοκοῦντα δ᾽ ἐκείνῳ”: but in such ‘anaphora’ the “μέν” is often omitted: cp. O. C. 1342“στήσω σ᾽ ἄγων”, | “στήσω δ᾽ ἐμαυτόν”: Ant. 906 f. (n.).
