Δι᾽ ὀργῆς—c. 13, 2.

εἰκὸς ἦν—sc. δρᾶσαι. Cf. c. 11, 8.

πρᾶγμα ... γεγενημένον—for the change to a neut. expression cf. c. 47, 3. πρᾶγμα is in apposition to the sentence generally, as in Andoc. 1, 39 τοῦθ᾽ ὑπέθετο, δεινότατον πρᾶγμα οἶμαι. ἐλπίδος—cf. c. 11, 6, 85, 4, 102, 3.

κρεῖσσον—cf. c. 41, 3.

οἶδ᾽ ὅτι—cf. εὖ οἶδ᾽ ὅτι, and δῆλον ὅτι. μέρος τι—‘considerably.’ [τι] εὖ πράξητε—either εὖ ποιεῖν, εὖ πράττειν, etc., or ἀγαθόν τι ποιεῖν, ἀγαθόν τι πράττειν, etc., are the phrases. For the latter, cf. Isocr. 2, 20, Aristoph. Eccles. 108.

ἀναθήσετε—‘you intend to attribute it to me.’ So the fut. indic. with εἰ may follow optat. with ἄν, and even alternate with εἰ and optat., as Andoc. 1, 30 δεινὸν ἂν εἴη, εἰ ὲμοὶ ὀργίζοισθε καὶ τὴν διαβολὴν ... κρείττω τῆς ἀληθείας ἡγήσεσθε.
