ἤτοι . . —c. 34, 2.

καὶ δέδοικα μέντοι—‘and I really fear lest their repeated efforts may at last be crowned with success’ (Wilkins). This is the affirmative μέντοι, as in answers of assent.

ἡμεῖς δὲ κακοί—‘we show no spirit in taking precautions before we suffer, or in stopping such men when we detect them.’

αἰσθόμενοι is opposed to πρὶν ἐν τῷ παθεῖν ὦμεν—for which see c. 10, 5.
