εἴρηκα μέν νυν ταῦτα, one of those formulas which serve to close a speech, like “πάντ᾽ ἐπίστασαι”, Ant. 402 f. The old edd. write “μὲν νῦν”, which would mean that he reserved further details for another time.

μελέσθω is probably impers. (as “μέλεται” in Theocr. 1. 53); though “μέλεταί τί μοι” is a less rare constr. for this midd. form (cp. 1436).
