ἀλλὰ νὴ Δία: often used to introduce an objection. For the use of the advs. νή and μά in swearing, see G. 1067; H. 723.

κατήγορος: possibly the author of a κατηγορία Σωκράτους, written after Socrates's death. See Dakyns, Works of Xenophon Vol. III, Part I, pp. xxxviii ff.

ἔφη: in direct discourse usually before its subj., as in 12.

ὑπερορᾶν τῶν νόμων: the gen. after the analogy of ἀμελεῖν τινος. The acc. is more usual, as in i. 3. 4, 4. 10.

ἀπὸ κυάμου: by the bean. The Athenians used black and white beans in selecting certain officials by lot; hence κυαμευτός is equivalent to κληρωτός or αἱρετός.
