ὡς δ᾽ αὔτως: and in the same way. Cf. ὡσαύτως in 4.

τί ἂν αὐτῷ συμβαίνοι: what would happen to him?

ἆρ᾽ οὐκ ἂν ... τοῦτ̓ εἴη λυπηρόν: the sent. is twice interrupted, as ἐπιθυμῶν is equiv. to a clause. For an even more involved structure, cf. ὅστις, ὥσπερ κτλ. iv. 2. 25.

λυπηρόν: painful.

κυβερνᾶν τε: instead of καὶ στρατηγεῖν, this is followed by στρατηγεῖν, with a slight change in the thought. Cf. γῆ, ὑγροτέρα τε οὖσα πρὸς τὸν σπόρον ἁλμοδεστέρα (too saltish) πρὸς φυτείαν Oec. xx. 12.

ἀπαλλάξειεν: would come out of it. In this sense, the pass. is somewhat more common.
