Table of Contents:
1. ὅπερ εἶπον: see the last sentence of § 188. 3. τῶν δικ. λόγων: with καιρὸς (West., Bl.), or (better) with φροντίζοντος.—τοσαύτην ὑπερβολὴν ποιοῦμαι, i.e. I go so far beyond what could be asked of me. 5. ἐνῆν: used personally with τι ἄλλο: cf. ὅσα ἐνῆν, § 193.4. So ἐνόντων (11): such participles are very often personal (M.T. 761).— ὧν ἐγὼ προειλόμην: cf. § 192.5, τὴν προαίρεσίν μου τῆς πολιτείας. 6. ἀδικεῖν, in its so-called perfect sense (M.T. 27). 7. τότε πραχθὲν=εἰ τότ᾽ ἐπράχθη. —τοῦτ̓...δεῖν ἐμὲ μὴ λαθεῖν, I say this ought not to have escaped me (at the time): δεῖν...λαθεῖν represents ἔδει ἐμὲ μὴ λαθεῖν. 8, 9. εἰ δὲ...τήμερον: for this com- pound protasis with a present, a past, and a potential optative united in one supposition, see M.T. 509: notice the three negatives and the emphatic καὶ in μήτ᾽ ἂν...τήμερον. See § 141.5.— μηδέπω καὶ τήμερον, not yet, even at this day. 10. τῶν φαινομένων καὶ ἐνόντων, of the plans which offered themselves to us and were feasible.
