κατατείνας κτλ.: ‘I will speak vehemently in praise of the unjust life.’ The explanation of Photius and Suidas (κατατείνας ἐρῶ: ἀντὶ τοῦ μακρὸν λόγον διεξελεύσομαι) does not suit II 367 B ὡς δύναμαι μάλιστα κατατείνας λέγω. For this intransitive use of κατατείνω cf. I 348 A and Boeckh's emendation of Eur. Iph. Aul. 336 οὔτε κατατενῶ (καταινῶ MSS) λίαν ἐγώ.

εἴ σοι βουλομένῳ. In Crat. 384 A ἐστί is again omitted in this phrase. A still bolder example is cited by Stallbaum from Antipho 6. 8 ἐὰν ὑμῖν ἡδομένοις. See Schanz Novae Comm. Plat. pp. 31— 35.
