ἐκεῖνος may refer to any person other than the speaker and the person addressed; and may be employed of a person not definitely described, but referred to in a supposed case. It is even used of the person already referred to by αὐτός in an oblique case: ἂ_ν αὐτῷ διδῷς ἀργύριον καὶ πείθῃς ἐκεῖνον if you give him money and persuade him P. Pr. 310d. ἐκεῖνος, when so used, usually stands in a different case than αὐτός. The order ἐκεῖνος . . . αὐτός is found: πρὸς μὲν ἐκείνους οὐκ εῖπεν ἣν ἔχοι γνώμην, ἀλλ' ἀπέπεμψεν αὐτούς he did not tell them the plan he had, but dismissed them X. H. 3.2.9.
