τοὺς ἰσχυροτέρους: the art. is employed, because ἰσχυροτέρους is not merely a pred. to τοὺς βελτίους κτἑ., but both ideas are considered as identical.

6 f.

ἥκεις ἔχων: as 518 a. In English also we often say, ‘here you are with,’ etc.

τινές: ‘τὶς may express indefiniteness of nature:a sort of.”’ H. 702.

εἰπὼν ἀπαλλάγηθι: relieve your mind by saying, tell and be done with it. Cf. below, e ἐγώ σοι νῦν παρρησιαζόμενος λέγω. The use of the aorist tense of the partic. may be simply a case of attraction; it certainly loses its connotation of past time, being practically identical with the time of the leading verb, as in Phaedo 60 c εὖ γ᾽ ἐποίησας ἀναμνήσας με. See GMT. 150, 845; H. 856 b.
