λόγον δ᾽ ἐμαυτῷ διδοὺς Frequent in Hdt.; not found in Dem.—τοῖς δικάσασι κ.τ.λ., 21 § 75; 59 § 8 (Huettner). οὐκ ἂν οἶδ᾽ ὅ τι ἄλλ᾽ εἶχον] ἂν is often attracted to the negative and separated from its verb (e.g. εἶχον) by the interposition of οἶδα (as here), οἴομαι, δοκῶ, φημί (as elsewhere). (Cf. note on Or. 37 (Pant.) § 16 οὐδ᾽ ἂν εἴ τι γένοιτο ᾠήθην δίκην μοι λαχεῖν, also Goodwin's Moods and Tenses § 42, 2. and Shilleto on Thuc. I 76 § 4.) It is quite unnecessary to accept the suggestion of Cobet οὐκ οἶδ᾽ ἂν ὄ τι (Nov. Lect. 581), or that of Dobree ‘distingue αὐτὸς οὐκ ἂν, οἶδ᾽ ὅτι, ἄλλο εἶχον.’ τούτους κ.τ.λ. 59 § 5 τῷ οὖν ἐξαπατήσαντι τῷ λόγῳ τοὺς δικαστὰς δίκαιον ὀργίζεσθαι, οὐ τοῖς ἐξαπατηθεῖσι. πρὸς ἐκείνους εἰσίω sc. εἰς δικαστήριον. ‘When I proceed against them,’ Endius and Scythes, contrasted with οὑτοσὶ, the present defendant. Compare § 17 ἐπὶ τοῦτον ῄ̂α, infr. § 41 ὅταν εἰσίω πρὸς...and Or. 54 § 32 ad fin. εἰσιέναι, or εἰσελθεῖν, is used of either litigant (e.g. in Or. 40 § 1, of the plaintiff; and ib. § 5 of the defendant); and also of the lawsuit itself in Or. 34 § 18. Cf. Or. 34 § 1 οὐδεμίαν πώποτε δἰκην πρὸς ὑμᾶς εἰσήλθομεν, οὔτ᾽ ἐγκαλοῦντες οὔτ᾽ ἐγκαλούμενοι ὑφ᾽ ἑτέρων. Cf. Wyse on Isaeus 1 § 3 εἰς ὑμᾶς.
