τεκμαιρόμενοι: “conjecturing, on superficial observation,” without obj., as in Cyr. i. 3. 5. προτρέψασθαι: that Socrates regarded the most important step as taken when enthusiasm for virtue had been aroused, is stated by several writers, e.g., Plut. Mor. p. 798 B, Plato Rep. i. 336. Cf. “ut Socratem illum solitum aiunt dicere, perfectum sibi opus esse, si quis satis esset concitatus cohortatione sua ad studium cognoscendae percipiendaeque virtutis: quibus enim id persuasum esset, ut nihil mallent se esse quam bonos viros, iis reliquam facilem esse doctrinam” Cic. de Or. i. 47. σκεψάμενοι, δοκιμαζόντων: “let them first examine, and then decide.” μή: instead of οὐ, as the participle is subordinated to the imv. δοκιμαζόντων. G. 1614; H. 1027. ἃ ἐρωτῶν ἤλεγχεν: the questions by which he used to refute, e.g., iii. 6, iv. 2. συνδιατρίβουσι: see on τῶν συνόντων i. 1. 4. εἰ ἦν: for the mode, see G. 1487; H. 932.
