καὶ τοῦτο—τοῦτο antieipates ἑκόντας ἡμᾶς ἀδικηθῆναι: cf. VI. 85 καὶ ἡμῖν τοῦτο ὠφελεῖ, οὐκ ἢν . . . ἀλλ᾽ ἤν . . δικαίως—i.e. as strict justiee allows. δεῖ refers to interest, as in § 4. τὸ Κλέωνος.—made in c. 40, 4: ‘Cleon's claim, namely the identity of justice and expediency in the punishment, is found to be impossible of being realized at once in such a punishment,’ viz. ἐν τῷ διαφθεῖραι. The sentence is illogical, for either τὸ αὐτό or ἅμα should have been omitted.
