τὸ εὔηθες—in the earliest, good sense of the word, according to its etymology (Plato, Rep. 400 E).

πλεῖστον μετέχει—‘in which nobility of character is the chief element.’ Or, less probably, ‘which is a very important element of a noble mind.’ Cf. I. 84, 3.

ἐπὶ πολὺ διήνεγκεν—‘gained the upper hand.’ ἐπἱ πολύ of space, ‘far and near.’
