ἐπιορκήσασα φανερῶς ‘By manifest perjury.’ Kennedy. See Or. 39 § 4.

ὑπομεῖναι “Graviter additum est ad significandum quam invitus homo mulieri cesserit.” G. H. Schaefer.

ἐξελήλαμαι His brother had behaved so badly that he could not continue to live in the same house. See § 56 fin.

εἰς ἣν κ.τ.λ. ‘Into which they were admitted, not by my father’ (i.e. which might have given some apparent right to their claim to the property), ‘but by myself after his death.’ Kennedy gives a slightly different turn to the sense, ‘and in which I received them after my father's death, though he in his lifetime would never admit them to it.’ The point seems to be, that the half-brothers have abused a reluctant concession. Their legal right, at least, is not clear, the marriage of Mantias with Plangon being left uncertain.
