ἐπεμβάλλεις, you insert yourself in this plea as a deliverer: i.e. to his protest against a breach of their promise (258—291), and his appeal to pity, he adds a promise of benefit to Attica (287, 459). Cp. Her. 2.4 “διὰ τρίτου ἔτεος ἐμβόλιμον ἐπεμβάλλουσι”, they insert an intercalary month every other year: Plat. Crat. 399A “πολλάκις ἐπεμβάλλομεν γράμματα, τὰ δ᾽ ἐξαιροῦμεν”, we insert letters (in words), or remove them. τῷδε λόγῳ is not instrum. dat., but goes with the verb. Not, "further pledge yourself to be the deliverer": in Ph. 813 “ἐμβάλλω μενεῖν” follows “ἔμβαλλε χειρὸς πίστιν”.
