ἐγενέσθην μέν: corresponds to ᾔδεσαν δέ in the following sentence. In this case, μέν and δέ will scarcely be over-translated by on the one hand, on the other. δή: “as is known,” almost equivalent to our colloquial ‘you know.’ ᾔδεσαν: changes from dual to pl. and vice versa, in the same sent., are common. G. 903; H. 634. Cf. 16, 18, 33; Hell. iv.4.7 ζῶντα: for the supplementary participle in indirect discourse, see on i.1.5. ἡδονῶν: equivalent to ἐπιθυμιῶν, the object of desire being substituted for the desire itself. Cf. 23. χρώμενον: “influenced.” βούλοιτο: for the opt., see on μέλλοι i. 1. 10.
