καὶ τὸν μὲν ἧστο πλεῖστον “κ.τ.λ.” The bold order of words is explained by “ἔπειτα” in 312: i.e., the thought is; ‘for one part of the time—the longest —he sat mute; then,’ etc. By separating “τὸν” from “πλεῖστον”, the writer obtains the same effect as if he had said, “καὶ πρῶτον μὲν καὶ τὸν πλεῖστον χρόνον κ.τ.λ.”
