θαα_σσόν τε—this is answered by ὁ δὲ Δημοσθένης below, τε . . . δέ replacing μὲν . . . δἐ, as often in tragedy. Cf. III. 52 τούς τε ἀδίκους κολάσειν, παρὰ δίκην δ᾽ οὐδἐνα. As for τε γὰρ meaning namque, there is no certainty that it occurs in good Attic. Several passages cited by Shilleto on Demosth. F. L. 176 are corrupt, and the rest are prob. instances of anacoluthon. Generally where τε is not answered by καὶ there is a parenthesis, which interrupts the construction, as in Plat. Gorg. 524B where τό τε σῶμα is eventually answered by ταὐτὸν δή μοι δοκεῖ . . . καὶ περὶ τὴν ψυχήν. ἐν τῷ τοιούτῳ—this phrase is used of circumstances of any kind. ἑκόντας εἶναι—εἶναι is infin. of limitation, and in this phrase is almost confined to neg. sentences. ὅσ᾽ ἂν ἀναγκάζωνται—as C has ὅσα ἀναγκάζωνται, Dobree's correction, by which the sense is much improved, should be accepted.
