μὴ εὐχὴ κτλ. For εὐχή=an impossible aspiration, a Utopian or chimerical proposal, cf. 456 C, VII 540 D and see Susemihl and Hicks on Arist. Pol. B 1. 1260^{b} 29.

ἀγνώμονες: i.q. ἀνεπιστήμονες, as explained (with reference to this passage) in Bekker's Anec. Gr. I p. 334: cf. Phaedr. 275 A. Hence φρονίμοις in E below. The more usual meaning, ‘inconsiderate,’ ‘unkind,’ is less suitable here on account of δύσνοι.
