πέμπει γράμματα . . . οἷα κ.τ.λ. = ἐπιστέλλει οἷα . . . καὶ ἀξιῶν as if (λέγων).

οἷα δέδρακε καὶ ἀξιῶν . . . καὶ πάνυ, with ἐν τῷ μεγ. κινδ. ὢν. It is difficult to understand why some editors join καὶ πάνυ to θορυβούμενος in an unparalleled position. καὶ is simply connective (though καὶ πάνυ is of course a recognised combination, e.g. ii. 11, 51), while πάνυ intensifies the following superlative; ‘and being in the very greatest danger.’ For the position of πάνυ cf. Plat. Euthyd. 305 C, πάνυ παρὰ πολλοῖς; 305 E, πάνυ ἐξ εἰκότος λόγου.
