εὖ φρονήσας, having conceived kindly thoughts; a very rare use of the aor. part. in this sense, instead of “εὖ φρονῶν”. The aor. part. of “φρονέω” usu. means, (1) ‘having come to a sound mind,’ O. T. 649, and so Isocr. or. 8. § 141,εὖ φρονήσαντας”: (2) ‘having formed a project,’ as Her. 7.145: (3) in the phrase “τὠυτὸ” (or “τὰ αὐτὰ”) “φρονήσαντες”, ‘having come to an agreement,’ Her. 1.60, 5. 72.

μανθάνειν δ': for the elision (“ἐπισυναλοιφή”) see O. T. 29 n.: and cp. above, 350.

εἰλέγοι: for the optative in the “γνώμη”, see 666 n. With ἥδιστον we supply “ἐστί”, as in O. T. 315.
