ὡς ἐκ κακῶν, ‘was pleased and glad so far as might be considering his past misfortunes’; cf. Thuc. vii. 42.

ἐπικλήτοισι: cf. vii. 8 n.

ἀπόδεξις, ‘they would be glad to have an opportunity of proving their innocence.’

ad fin. Literally (Macan): ‘Advise me by doing which of the two I shall succeed in having been well advised.’ The phrase is an extension of the ordinary τί ποιέων ἐπιτεύξομαι, ἐπτυγχόνειν being here (and in ch. 103) used with the participle like the simple verb (102. 1). Perhaps the preposition adds the idea of hitting the mark.
