Καί τινα—the principal sentence. Πλειστοάνακτα —when Euboea and Megara revolted from Athens 445 B.C., and Pericles had crossed to Euboea, Pleistoanax invaded Attica, but retreated after ravaging the Thriasian plain, as Pericles returned. μεμνημένοι. .ὅτε...ἀνεχώρησε—‘remembering the time when.’ Cf. c. 54, 4 μνήμη ἐγένετο . ὅτε (ὁ θεὸς) ἀνεῖλε. Eur. Hec. 112 οἶσθ᾽ ὅτε χρυσέοις ἐφάνη ξὺν ὅπλοις. Only ὅτε is used in prose to mark a date. See c. 98, 1. So ‘audivi eum eum diceret.’ ἐσβαλὼν ... οὐκέτι προελθὼν— both temporal; cf. c. 68, 3, 71, 2, where also the time of the first precedes that of the second. ἐς Ἐ. καὶ Θριῶζε—i.e. ἐς Ἐ. καὶ τὸ Θριάσιον πεδίον. ἐς τὸ π. οὐκέτι—‘without advancing further.’ Cf. I. 114 τὸ πλἐον οὐκέτι προελθόντες. With the eomparative the -έτι is superfluous, but idiomatic. ἡ φυγὴ—Thuc. writes as though he had mentioned this before, but nothing is said about it in I. 114, and it is again referred to incidentally V. 16. It must have been a very famous event.
