Potential Optative Clause with Relative Pronoun?

Hi,

From Plato's Apology, 34b6,

Ei0=en dh/, w)= a)/ndrej: a(\ me\n e)gw\ e)/xoim0 a)\n a)pologei=sqai, sxedo/n e)sti tau=ta kai\ a)/lla i)/swj toiau=ta.

Can I call the first clause in the sentence above a potential optative with a neuter accusative plural relative pronoun (a(/)?

My traslation: "Very well, men; that (tau=ta) is about all, and more perhaps of the same kind (toiau=ta), which (a(/) I could/ have to offer in (my) defence."

Thank you.

Hi Everyone!

I was wondering if anyone has found any pictures of the manuscripts of Greek authors on the web?

Also the variant readings to the beginning of the Illiad, does anyone have any idea where I might find this?

What should I do with Greek accents, when reading ancient Greek aloud?

Is it a question of pitch? I presume it isn't stress.

Sorry if you already knew this, but I thought it could be interesting...
