1. τῶν λόγων, depend- ing on τοὺς πολλούς.—ἄνω καὶ κάτω διακυκῶν, mixing them in utter confusion. See IX. 36, ἄνω καὶ κάτω πεποίηκε, and without καί IV. 41, συμπαραθεῖτε ἄνω κάτω, up and down.

2. παραγεγραμμένων: the laws which the indicted decree (τὸ φεῦγον ψήφισμα) was charged with violating were written on a tablet (σανίδιον) by its side, and this was posted in the court-room. See Aesch. III. 200: ἐν ταῖς γραφαῖς τῶν παρανόμων παράκειται κανὼν τοῦ δικαίου τουτὶ τὸ σανίδιον καὶ τὸ ψήφισμα καὶ οἱ παραγεγραμμένοι νόμοι.

4. τὴν ὀρθὴν (sc. ὁδόν), as we say, straightforward: see Ar. Av. 1, ὀρθὴν κελεύεις;

5. τῶν δικαίων, the rights of the case, opposed to τῶν λόγων (1).— τοσούτῳ δέω λέγειν, I am so far from saying: τοσούτῳ (Σ) with δέω as with comparatives: so in IX. 17. Most MSS. have τοσούτου in both passages.

6. διέβαλλε καὶ διωρίζετο: see § 4.6.

8. ὧν...πεπολίτευμαι, i.e. either for money that I have handled or for public acts that I have done.
