νῦν δὲ πιστεύων The parenthesis beginning at ἐν γὰρ τῷ τοιούτῳ interrupts the constr., which is resumed by ἐγὼ δ᾽ ἐμαυτῷ, κ.τ.λ., ἥκω εἰς ὑμᾶς. Cp. §§ 11, 12.

συνειδότι...ξυνειδέναι The mss. of Antiphon fluctuate between σύν and ξύν: the latter recurs in § 78 of this speech, ξυμβόλων, and in § 87, ξυνειδώς.

τὴν τιμωρίαν...ταύτην ‘that this had come upon her as the punishment’. Cp. Lys. In Agor. § 30, δὲ ἀρχὴ αὕτη... ἐγένετο, ‘this became the beginning’. The pronoun, which might have been neuter (τοῦτο), is assimilated to the gender of the noun. See my n. on Soph. O. C. 88. In this construction the definite article is not usually added to the noun, but is, of course, quite admissible. It is unwarrantable, therefore, to delete τὴν here.
