ἐκ τούτων (sc. λόγων): as a result of this conversation.

Ἀρχέδημον: prob. the same man that afterward attained considerable power in Athens. Cf. Ἀρχέδημος τοῦ δήμου τότε προεστηκώς Hell. i.7.2, where he is mentioned as having charge of the distribution of the διωβελία or theater fund. As a popular orator, he was ridiculed by Aristophanes Frogs v. 417 ff.

οἷος κερδαίνειν: for the inf., see on οἵους i. 4. 6.

ἀπὸ παντός: “from any and every occupation,” good or bad. Cf. the adj. πανοῦργος ready to do anything, hence unscrupulous.

ἀπὸ τῶν συκοφαντῶν: ἀπό with the gen., instead of παρά, as implying an unwilling surrender on the part of the συκοφάνται, while λαμβάνειν παρά τινος is equivalent to accipere ab aliquo. Archedēmus knew how to make the accusers disgorge their ill-gotten gains.

ἂν ἔδωκε: for the iterative aor. with ἄν, see G. 1296; H. 835 a.
