1. παρὰ...ἀνθρώποις: see two similar cases of παρά in § 297.4, 6. —τοῖς ἄλλοις πᾶσιν, i.e. all except Aesch.

2. τὰ τοιαῦτα, i.e. such (prin- ciples) as the following, explained by the statements in 3—8.

3. ἀδικεῖ τις ἑκών, a man (let us suppose) is guilty of voluntary injustice. We have three such suppositions in independent sentences, with paratactic replies or apodoses. For a similar arrangement see § 117, ἐπέδωκα, ἦρχον, ἀδίκως ἦρξα, with the replies. See also § 198.7—9.

ὀργὴν καὶ τιμωρίαν: sc. διωρισμέ- νην ὁρῶ.

5. οὔτ᾽ ἀδικῶν τις οὔτ̓ ἐξαμαρτά- νων, i.e. one who neither is guilty of injustice nor errs (sc. ἀκών).

7. μεθ᾽ ἁπάντων, i.e. in common with everybody.

8. συνάχθεσθαι, sympathize with him.
