2. ἐμοῦ: with οὐδὲν ἧττον. —πομπεύειν (cf. πομπείας, § 11.7): referring to ἐξ ἁμάξης, § 122.7, and λοιδορίαν, § 123.2.

3. ἔλαττον ἔχων ἀπελθεῖν, to get off with any less (than he has given): this fatal principle of paying off vituperation in the same base coin is the weak justification of the scurrility which follows (§§ 128—131) and elsewhere.

5. πότερον...φῇ; here φῇ τις; hardly differs from φῶμεν; the third person without τις in these questions is rare (M.T. 289).

7. οὗ, where, explained by ἐν...κρί- σεσιν.—ὑπὲρ τούτων: the Athenians present, as representing the whole.

8. ἐξέλειπες expresses habitual neglect.

9. εὐθύναις: i.e. by bringing a suit in connection with my εὔθυναι (see note on § 117.8), like the γραφὴ παραπρεσβείας against Aeschines (XIX.).

γραφαῖς: here ordinary public suits, not including εἰσαγγελία, εὔθυναι, etc., which come under γραφαί in its wider sense. See § 249.3.
