τὰς στοὰς ἐμπιπλ. γραμμάτων ‘to cover the walls of their porticoes with statutes’; Andoc. De Myst. § 85, ἐδοκιμάσθησαν μὲν οὖν οἱ νόμοι, τοὺς δὲ κυρωθέντας ἀνέγραψαν εἰς τὴν στοάν (i.e. the στοὰ βασίλειος in the Agora). The ψήφισμα cited there directs, τοὺς δὲ κυρουμένους τῶν νόμων ἀναγράφειν εἰς τὸν τοῖχον, ἵναπερ πρότερον ἀνεγράφησαν, σκοπεῖν τῷ βουλομένῳ. So here ἀκριβῶς ἀναγεγραμμένους=‘posted up’, ‘promulgated’, in strict terms.

καὶ τοῖς ἁπλῶς κειμένοις ‘even those laws which are conceived in simple terms’ — opp. to ἀκριβῶς, i.e. with less attempt to define rigorously a number of special cases. Cp. Lysias In Theomn. § 7, note.
