ᾔνεσας=“ξυνῄνεσας” (cp. 122), “ὠμολόγησας.

πέμπειν. Here the inf. merely defines the action to which the pron. refers: the fut. inf. was therefore unnecessary: and the pres. inf. has been used, rather than the aor., because ‘sending’ is thought of as a process, not as a momentary act. Similarly the pres. (or aor.) inf. is sometimes used, rather than the fut., when the notion of fut. time is sufficiently expressed by the principal verb: cp. Thuc. 3. 13ὥστε οὐκ εἰκὸς αὐτοὺς περιουσίαν νεῶν ἔχειν, ἢν” “ὑμεῖς...ἐπεσβάλητε”: and id. 1. 81 “οὕτως εἰκὸς Ἀθηναίους...μήτε...δουλεῦσαι κ.τ.λ.
