Νικόκλεις: see Introd. p. 21.

ἐσθῆτας ἄγειν χαλκὸν χρυσόν: perhaps a reminiscence of Hom. Od. xvi. 231 χαλκόν τε χρυσόν τε ἅλις ἐσθῆτά θ᾽ ὑφαντήν.

λίαν ἔδοξαν εἶναί μοι καταφανεῖς: λίαν qualifies καταφανεῖς and probably owes its position to a desire to avoid hiatus which would be caused by πλουτεῖτε and ἔδοξαν coming together; cp. E. 48 πολὺ λίαν ἀπολειφθῶ and note.

τεχνικώτερον: see note on E. 73.

καπηλεύειν: usually of ‘retail trading’ (often with a further meaning of ‘cheating’), here confined to ‘trading’ in general.
