κατ᾽ ἐμαυτόν, οὐ πρὸς κτλ. “In my own fashion, not entering into competition with your orations.” For κατὰ c. acc. in this sense, cp. Apol. 17 B οὐ κατὰ τούτους εἶναι ῥήτωρ (“not after their pattern”): Gorg. 505 D.

γέλωτα ὄφλω. This resumes the notion in καταγέλαστος ὤν, 198 C.

Φαῖδρε. Socrates, like Agathon (197 E), politely appeals to Ph. as the πατὴρ λόγου: cp. 194 D.

εἴ τι κτλ. For εἴ τι, numquid, cp. Rep. 526 E σκοπεῖσθαι δεῖ εἴ τι πρὸς ἐκεῖνο τείνει κτλ.

ὀνόμασι δὲ κτλ. See 198 B n. Of ὁποία δή Ast cites no instance; the force of δή is to heighten the notion of indefiniteness which lies in ὁποία (so Hug).

ἔτι τοίνυν κτλ. ἔτι goes with ἐρέσθαι. Socrates appeals thus to Ph. because Ph. had previously (194 D, E) debarred him from catechizing A.

ἀνομολογησάμενος κτλ. Cf. 200 E, Gorg. 489 A. For οὕτως ἤδη, cp. 194 D. For ἐνθένδε ποθὲν, 178 A.
