ἀκρόπολις—i.e. ἀκρόπολις νῦν ἐστι πόλις ἦν, the city was a mere stronghold. ‘What is now the acropolis, and the ground lying under it to the south was the city’ (J.). (The bracked would imply a contrast with some older acropolis.) The same observation is true of London and Paris.

πρὸς τετραμμένον—here in its literal sense, but oftener metaphorical, as in c. 25, 2; Plat. Phaedo, p. 66 D.
