Εὐθύδημον: cf. i.2.29.

γράμματα πολλὰ συνειλεγμένον: had collected many writings, as we should say, ‘had a good library.’ He may have had several dozen manuscripts. Cf. what Socrates says of himself, τοὺς θησαυροὺς τῶν πάλαι σοφῶν ἀνδρῶν, οὓς ἐκεῖνοι κατέλιπον ἐν βιβλίοις γράψαντες κτλ. i. 6. 14.

σοφιστῶν: see on i.1.11.

ἐκ τούτων: as a result of this.

πρῶτον μέν: corresponds to ἐπεὶ δέ in 6.

διὰ νεότητα: perhaps he was not yet eighteen. See on iii. 6. 1.

ἡνιοποιεῖόν τι τῶν: equivalent to τὶ τῶν ἡνιοποιείων τῶν. On such shops as places of resort, see Becker, Charicles, p. 279.

ᾔει: the main verb at last, preceded by the circumstantial participles καταμαθών and αἰσθανόμενος, and followed by ἔχων.

τῶν μεθ̓ ἑαυτοῦ: companions. In the Anabasis the phrase generally means attendants or retinue.
