αὐτόθεν. Statim, illico (Stallb.); cp. Thuc. VI. 21. 2.

ἐπὶ ῥητοῖς. “On the terms stated” (cp. Laws 850 A), i.e. as a συμπότης. This is made clear by the following clause, συμπίεσθε οὔ; which repeats the condition already stated in 212 E (μεθύοντα...δέξεσθε συμπότην): Rückert, as Stallb. observes, is wrong in saying “at nullam (conditionem) dixit adhuc.” That Alcibiades meant his “conditions” to be taken seriously is shown by the sequel, 213 E ff.

ἀναθορυβῆσαι. Cp. 198 A. For καλεῖν, see 212 D ad init.

ὑπὸ τῶν ἀνθρώπων. Including, we may suppose, the αὐλητρίς, see 212 D.

ἐπίπροσθε...Σωκράτη. “Und da er sie sich vor die Augen hielt, bemerkte er Sokrates nicht” (Zeller). Ficinus, followed by Wolf and Schleierm., wrongly renders “Socratem, licet e conspectu adstantem, non vidit”; so too Hommel writes “ante oculos habuit et vidit Socratem, sed eum non agnovit.” For ἐπίπροσθεν ἔχειν, cp. Critias 108 C.

παρὰ τὸν Ἀγάθωνα. I.e. on the ἐσχάτη κλίνη: for the disposition of the company see 175 C.
