τοὺς ταῦτα δυνησομένους, ‘those who are to be able to do these things.’ τηλικούτων: see note on E. 19. ῥᾳθυμεῖν: see note on ῥᾴθυμος, E. 35. ἀμελεῖν: used absolutely; cp. E. 78 and note. δέδεικται γὰρ κτἑ: for the sentiment cp. E. 41 ἡγούμενος μέν, εἰ καλῶς τὴν αὑτοῦ φρόνησιν παρασκευάσειε, καλῶς αὑτῷ καὶ τὴν βασιλείαν ἕξειν. δέδεικται might have indicated a direct reference to this passage in the Evagoras, but for the fact that this speech is certainly the earlier of the two (see Introd. pp. 20, 21). δέδεικται is therefore in the sense of ‘it is well known’ (Latin constat), lit. ‘it has been made clear’, as elsewhere in Isocr., e.g. § 49, Panegyr. 165, cp. Archid. 4 (ἦν δεδειγμένον).
