οὐκ ἀπεκρύπτετο γνώμην: directed at the criticism uttered by Hippias in 9. For the attraction of the antec. into the rel. clause, see on i.2.22.

ἣν εἶχε: here equivalent to the art. τήν in the unemphatic possessive use.

καὶ ἔργῳ: “in his very actions,” contrasted with καὶ ἔλεγε δέ in 5.

ἄρχουσί τε πειθόμενος: corresponds to καὶ ὅτε οὐκ ἐπέτρεψε in 2. Strict adherence to ‘concinnity’ would require καὶ οὐκ ἐπιτρέπων, but this would have occasioned an accumulation of participles.

οἱ νόμοι προστάττοιεν: in regard to matters which the laws enjoined. For the opt., see on νομίζοιεν i. 1. 6.

ὥστε εἶναι: for the inf., see on ὥστε ἔχειν i. 2. 1.

παρὰ τοὺς ἄλλους: beyond all others. See on i. 4. 14.
