Δήλια: not to be confused with the ὁ εἰς Δῆλον πεμπόμενος χορός of iii. 3. 12, which was sent every four years.

Cf. Plato Phaedo 58 A. τὸν νόμον ἐᾶν: also governed by διά.— διαβιούς: for second aors. of the -μι form, see G. 799; H. 489, 14.—For the demeanor of Socrates during the last hours in his cell, see the concluding chapters of Plato's Phaedo.
