πράγματα ‘for I happened to be engaged in cases against Ariston and Philînus, and was anxious to lose no time after the impeachment (εἰσήγγειλα) in making a due and formal statement to the Council and to the Athenian public’. Philînus and two other persons had been charged by the speaker with embezzling public monies, as appears from §§ 21, 55. Antiphon wrote a speech κατὰ Φιλίνου (Attic Orators, I. 63 note).

εἴ τι δέοι τῷ χορῷ Cp. Eur. Suppl. 594, ἓν δεῖ μόνον μοι. Usually δεῖ μοί τινος, more rarely δεῖ μέ τινος.
