οἷα δὴ κτλ. Sc. φιλεῖ γίγνεσθαι, or the like; cp. Rep. 467 B οἷα δὴ ἐν πολέμῳ φιλεῖ (sc. γίγνεσθαι); Euthyd. 272 A.

οὐδὲν ἦσαν...πρὸς κτλ. Cp. 195 D οἷος ἦν...πρὸς κτλ., and 216 E οὐδὲν εἶναι.

εὐωχίαις. Cp. Laws 666 B ἐν τοῖς συσσιτίοις εὐωχηθέντα: 203 B supra.

τά τ̓ ἄλλα κτλ. The construction is loose; we may either explain it (with Stallb.) as a brachylogy for τά τ᾽ ἄλλα καὶ δὴ καὶ τοῦτο ὅτι...ἐκράτει, or say (with Wolf) that ἐκράτει is carelessly put for κρατῶν. Hug construes πίνειν closely with ἀναγκασθείη, marking οὐκ ἐθέλων as a parenthesis; but it is simpler to regard πίνειν as a kind of accus. of respect (“at drinking”) with ἐκράτει. For the ἀνάγκη of the “symposiarch's” ruling cp. 176 A, 223 B.

ἑώρακεν. The plpf. ἑωράκει (in spite of Rettig, etc.) is inconsistent with πώποτε. For Socr.'s invincibility in carousals, see 176 C, 214 A, 223 C; and cp. Theogn. 491 ἀνίκητος δέ τοι οὗτος | ὃς πολλὰς πίνων μή τι μάταιον ἐρεῖ.

αὐτίκα...ἔσεσθαι. I.e. we shall have proof, before the night is over, of Socr.'s καρτερία in this regard.

δεινοὶ...χειμῶνες. Cp. Thuc. II. 70 ὁρῶντες μὲν τῆς στρατιᾶς τὴν ταλαιπωρίαν ἐν χωρίῳ χειμερινῷ: Aesch. Pers. 495 ff.

θαυμάσια εἰργάζετο. An echo of 182 E and 213 D.
