Ἐν ἴσῳ—cf. 53, 4. καὶ—‘as’; so after ἴσος III. 14, 1; ὁμοῖος VI. 11, 1; VIII. 76, 4. ἐνεθυμήθη—c. 40, 2. οὐκ ἂν ὁμοίως—meiosis. Cf. for ὁμοίως, c. 44, 3. οἰκείως—like an οἰκεῖος, ‘as a loyal citizen,’ who regards himself as much bound to the state as to his family. τοῦδε—this I am speaking of, viz. patriotism. ϝικώμενος— the reading adopted is far more likely than the MSS. genitive, as the partic. corresponds to γνοὺς and ἔχων. (The gender would be masc., cf. c. 47, 4. So Kr., but recent edd., except Cr., make it neut., with τοῦδε for subj., against which it may be urged (a) τόδε νικᾶται means ‘this view is rejected,’ unless τόδε is personified, in which case (b) we should expect χρήμασι also to be personified, and to become ὑπὸ τῶν χ.) τούτου— i.e. χρημάτων, cf. τοῦδε above. ἀπόδοιτο—there are readings πολοῖτο and ἀπόλοιτο in inferior MSS.
