P. Θαργηλιών, ὁ. v. intrans. You may, you are allowed to: P. and V. ἔξεστί σοι (infin.), πάρεστί σοι (infin.), or πάρα σοι (infin.), ἔνεστί σοι (infin.). In wishes: see would that. You may be right: P. κινδυνεύεις ἀληθῆ λέγειν (Plat., Sym. 205D). You may never have seen a state governed by a tyrant: P. ὑμεῖς δὲ τάχα οὐδὲ τεθέασθε τυραννουμένην πόλιν (Plat., Legg. 711A). This reproach may perhaps have come extorted by anger: V. ἀλλʼ ἦλθε μὲν δὴ τοῦτο τοὔνειδος τάχ’ ἄν ὀργῇ βιασθέν (Soph., O.R. 523). You may get you gone where you will: V. σὺ μὲν κομίζοις ἂν σεαυτὸν ᾗ θέλεις (Soph., Ant. 444). My method may be worse or it may be better: P. ἴσως μὲν γὰρ (ὁ τρόπος) χείρων, ἴσως δὲ βελτίων ἂν εἴη (Plat., Ap. 18A).
