ἐπιμελεῖται: takes cognizance of.

ἀποδιδόντας: supplementary participle with περιορᾷ.

ἄρχειν: to serve as archon, technical term. Cf. βουλεύσας i. 1. 18. A law of Solon provided for a rigid examination into the ‘record’ of a candidate for the archonship, and if it was found that he had been guilty of violence or neglect toward his parents (εἰ τὸν πατέρα τύπτει, τὴν μητέρα, μὴ παρέχει οἴκησιν) he was excluded from all public office.—ὡς οὔτε ἂν τὰ ἱερὰ κτλ.: on the ground that the sacrifices would not be offered piously on behalf of the state if this man officiated. For the participle with ὡς, see on 3 and i. 1. 4. Obs. the emphatic repetition of τούτῳ, τοῦτον, τούτου.

οὐδὲν ἄν: sc. πραττόμενον, to be const. like θυόμενα above.
