μεμφομένους—equivalent to μεμφομένους καὶ ἀξιοῦν- τας, the brachylogy being made easier by the preceding τοὺς προθέντας τὴν δ., the persons censured.

δύο . . ὀργήν—some make τάχος τε καὶ ὀργήν subj. of εἶναι, removing the comma, comparing cc. 40, 2, 57, 3, 75, 1. The parallels do not seem to prove the point.

τὸ μέν=τάχος. This passage is directly aimed at Cleon, who had deprecated χρόνου διατριβήν, thus showing his own follv, and had displayed the vehemence to which the ignorant and shallow-minded are pione.

γίγνεσθαι ‘to be found.’
