ἐπὶ τῷ βίῳ παντί: for his whole life, i.e. for all that life could bring him. Cf. ἐπὶ πόσῳ ἂν ἐθέλοις τὴν γυναῖκά σου ἀκοῦσαι ὅτι σκευοφορεῖς Cyr. iii. 1. 43. G. 1210, 2 c; H. 799, 2 c.—[δυσάνεκτα]: found only here, is perhaps an interpolation suggested by ἀνασχέσθαι above.

εἶπα: the rare first pers. sing. of the Ionic aorist. The second pers. is much more common. Of εἶπα only six instances in Attic are cited by Veitch (Greek Verbs, p. 205 ff.).

πόσα: cognate accusative.
