78. φιλονικεῖντὸ ἐμὲ εἶναι. For the orthography of φιλονικεῖν see note on 336Eabove. Apparently φιλονικεῖν is not elsewhere used in Plato with the accusative, but the construction is a natural one and occurs in Thucydides: in Rep. I. 338A we have προσεποιεῖτο δὲ φιλονικεῖν πρὸς τὸ ἐμὲ εἶναι τὸν ἀποκρινόμενον.
