ὁμόδε -- ἰέναι: ‘dares to close with the argument’ not ‘with us in argument’ (one of J. and C.'s alternatives). Cf. Euthyd. 294 D ὁμόσε ᾔτην τοῖς ἐρωτήμασιν, Euthyph. 3 C and Theaet. 165 E.

λέγειν ὡς πονηρότερος κτλ. I think it was Dr Johnson who said ‘Every man is a rascal when he is sick.’ For the omission of the copula with ὁμολογεῖν cf. II 374 A note
