ὃ οὐκ...ἐνεῖναι. This is a specimen of the naive candour which characterizes Alcib. throughout. For Alcib.'s self-assurance, cp. Xen. Mem. I. 2. 47. ἡττημένῳ...πολλῶν. “Me honori, quo me ornet populi multitudo, succumbere” (Stallb.). Cp. Rep. 359 A: Xen. Cyrop. III. 3. 2 ἥδεσθαι τῇ ὑπὸ πάντων τιμῇ: Thuc. I. 130. 1. For the thought, cp. Rep. 491 C ff. δραπετεύω. “I take to my heels,” like a runaway slave (δραπέτης, Meno 97 E). τὰ ὡμολογημένα. I.e. the conclusions as to his own ἔνδεια forced upon him by S.; cp. 216 A ἀναγκάζει...ὁμολογεῖν.
