1. ὑπείληφα: cf. pass. ὑπείλημμαι (8).—ἐγὼ...δεῖν: an iambic trimeter.

3. ποιήσαντ̓: sc. εὖ.—ἐπιλελῆ- σθαι: cf. πεπαῦσθαι, § 266.5.

4. μικροψύχου: see note on § 279.6.

5. ὑπομιμνῄσκειν, i.e. to be always calling to mind.

6. μικροῦ δεῖν, the full form of μικροῦ, almost (M.T. 779): cf. § 151.3. West. quotes Cic. Lael. XX. 71, odiosum sane genus hominum officia exprobrantium; quae meminisse debet is in quem collata sunt, non commemorare qui contulit; and Sen. Benef. II. 10, haec enim beneficii inter duos lex est: alter statim oblivisci debet dati, alter accepti nunquam; lacerat animum et premit frequens meritorum commemoratio. Pericles (Thuc. II. 40) looks at the matter from a different point of view: οὐ γὰρ πάσχοντες εὖ ἀλλὰ δρῶντες κτώμεθα τοὺς φίλους: κ.τ.λ.
