ἐμβεβλημἐνος ‘Without having filed (or, entered) any affidavit.’ In the medial sense, like μαρτυρίαν ἐνεβάλοντο, § 58, lit. ‘having caused to be thrown in,’ i.e. εἰς τὸν ἐχῖνον. See § 28, and cf. 54 § 31.

ὁμολογῶν κ.τ.λ. Fals. leg. 215 ἴστε γὰρ δήπου τοῦθ᾽ , ὅτι ἀφ̓ οὗ γεγόνασιν ἄνθρωποι καὶ κρίσεις γίγνονται, οὐδεὶς πώποθ̓ ὁμολογῶν ἀδικεῖν ἑάλω, ἀλλ̓ ἀναισχυντοῦσιν, ἁρνοῦνται, ψεύδονται, προφάσεις πλάττονται, πάντα ποιοῦσιν ὑπὲρ τοῦ μὴ δοῦναι δίκην. This passage belongs to a later date than the present speech, but the writers of both may have borrowed from an earlier original. Blass Att. Ber. III i 453{1}, 512{2}. In a speech earlier than both, we have, in 31 § 12. οὐδεὶς πώποτ᾽ ὦφλε σιωπῶν οὐδ̓ ἀδικεῖν ὁμολογῶν. S.]

παραγωγὰς Arguments to lead away from the real point; ‘shuffling excuses.’ Kennedy. Hesych. παραγωγαί: ἀπάται, χρήσεις (perhaps καταχρήσεις). Cf. Or. 23 § 95 ἁπλῆν μὲν οὐδὲ δικαίαν οὐδ᾽ ἡντινοῦν ἀπολογίαν Ἀριστοκράτης ἕξει λέγειν, παραγωγὰς δέ τινας τοιαύτας ἐρεῖ.

περὶ τούτου Either ‘about this matter,’ or ‘about the family history of the defendant.’
