ἐπιείκεια: esp. consideration on the part of the powerful for subjects or inferiors, as opp. to ὕβρις; equity with a touch of clemency. See on iii. 40. 7.

αὐτοῦ: i.e. τοῦ διδάσκειν καθ̓ ἡσυχίαν ἀλλήλους.—φαίνεται: see App.

ἐξ αὐτοῦ: this refers again to τοῦ διδάσκειν καθ᾽ ἡσυχίαν ἀλλήλους. “If this is agreed to, then the result brings to us,” etc.—περιγενομένοις: “if we prove ourselves to be in the right.”—τῷ δικαίῳ: “by the justice of our cause.”
