οἶδας: cf. οἴδασιν Oec. xx. 14, οἴδαμεν An. ii.4.6, Ionic forms rare in Attic. Cf. εἶπα ii. 2. 8. Xenophon's use of these forms may be explained by his long residence among non-Attic Greeks.—ὀρθῶς κτλ.: cf. the conclusion reached in 4.

ποτέ: “finally,” after this long discussion. Cf. μόγις οὖν ποτε ἡμῖν ἅνθρωπος ἀνέῳξε τὴν θύραν Plato Prot. 314 E.
