ἐπιδείξωγνώσεσθε Or. 36 § 3.

μεμαρτυρηκότα τὰ ψευδῆ ‘guilty of having given false evidence.’ Elsewhere in the speech τὰ ψευδῆ occurs 16 times; ψευδῆ only in § 41, where it has a predicative sense. In Or. 46 τὰ ψ. alone is used; in Or. 47, τὰ ψ. is found 8 times, ψ. in §§ 4, 11, 79 (see Biass, in Rheinisches Museum 1889, p. 20).

τοσαύτη περιφάνεια κ.τ.λ. ‘So transparent is the case.’ ‘So plain and clear from every point of view.’ Or. 29 § 1 (also of false witness) ῥᾳδίως ἐξελέγξας διὰ τὴν περιφάνειαν τῶν πραγμάτων. Isaeus, Or. 7 § 28 τοσαύτη περιφάνεια τῆς ἐμῆς ποιήσεως ἐγένετο παρ᾽ αὐτοῖς...ἐπὶ τοσούτων μαρτύρων γέγονεν ποίησις. Cf. Hom. Od. I 426 περισκέπτῳ ἐνὶ χώρῳ, and ib. v 476 ἐν περιφαινομένῳ.

ἐξ ὧν...γνώσεσθε This being the syntax, ἀκούσαντες must be taken by itself, ‘when you have heard it.’

ἐκείνου sc. Φορμίωνος.
