ἐρρωμενεστέρως: for comparative adverbs in -ως see note on E. 5 φιλοτιμοτέρως, and for adverbs formed from participles see note on E. 43 πεπλανημένως. αὑτοῦ: for σαυτοῦ. The reflexive pronoun of the 3rd person is not infrequently used in Attic Greek in place of that of the 1st and 2nd persons; cp. § 24 πρὸς ἑαυτόν (= σεαυτόν), § 38 τοῖς αὑτοῦ (= σεαυτοῦ) παισίν, and Phil. 129 πρὸς τὴν πατρίδα τὴν αὑτοῦ (= ἐμαυτοῦ). The use may perhaps be explained by the fact that the 3rd personal reflexive can be used of an indefinite person, so here τὴν αὑτοῦ διάνοιαν might be translated ‘one's own understanding’.
