ἅτε καὶ θέρους ὄντος. The action is probably laid in Hecatombaeon (roughly our July): see Introd. § 3. Bekker (following the punctuation of A) takes τότε with ὄντος, but πρότερον δὲ οὔπω shews that it belongs to καὶ εἶδον.

τότε καὶ is simply ‘then too’; I cannot see anything “mock-heroic” in the expression, as J. and C. do.

εἰ οὖν λέγοιμι κτλ. εἰ δ̓ οὖν is read by Ast: “sed sufficit externum, ut ita dicam. vinculum οὖν (Schneider).” δημηγορεῖν and εἰπεῖν ὅσα βούλομαι are the opposites of διαλέγεσθαι and βραχυλογία (Prot. 336 B, 335 A).
