ὡς μὲν ὑπομνῆσαι (with ἱκανῶς), ‘for a reminder to you,’ lit. ‘regarded as (uttered) to remind you.’ The infinitive is used absolutely with ὡς, as not uncommonly, though oftenest in stereo typed phrases such as ὡς ἔπος εἰπεῖν: sometimes also without ὡς, as in ἐμοὶ δοκεῖν. ὡς δ᾽ ἂν ἐξετασθείη, lit. ‘how my words might be tested,’ so ‘as to any way in which (or conditions under which) my words,’ etc. The construction is somewhat like that of ὡς ἂν εἴποιτε in § 3. οὐδένα, with the principal verb, instead of μηδένα with the infinitive; cf. § 33. δίκαιός ἐστι, personal construction preferred, as often, to the impersonal δίκαιόν ἐστιν αὐτὸν ἀπολωλέναι. τῆς (sc. πάντων) ζημίας, governed by μετά. For the order cf. Dem. 8. 3 τοῖς περὶ τῶν ἄλλων θορύβοις καὶ ταῖς (sc. περὶ τῶν ἄλλων) κατηγορίαις. Both Philocrates and Aeschines were brought to trial in the following year.
