οὐκ αἰσχρῶς διατεθείη: would not be put into a shameful condition. So διακεῖσθαι in i. 1. 13.

νὴ τὴν Ἥραν: an expression used by women, and, among men, apparently used by Socrates only. Cf. iii.10.9, 11. 5, iv. 2. 9, 4. 8.

δουλεύοντα: sc. τινά. The dat. is the usual case for the agent with verbals in -τέος. When the acc. was used, it was perhaps because the verbal was regarded as equivalent to δεῖ with the infinitive. G. 1188; H. 991 a.

δεσποτῶν ἀγαθῶν: i.e. masters who set their servants a good example (Kühner). Cf. Oec. i. 23.
