Σχόντες ... ἀπατηθέντες ... ἀποβάλλουσι—the first participle is temporal, while the second belongs closely to the verb and defines it like an adverb of manner.

ἐξ ὁμολογίας —‘after an agreement had been made with them,’ the Corinthians, so that they had reason to expect the surrender of the islanders. The antithesis is between ἀπατὴ and ὁμολογία, i.e. ἐξ ὸμολογίας ἀπατὴ γίγνεται, as ἐξ is constantly used of persons, to denote a change of condition; cf. transfuga ex oratore etc.

ἀπροσδοκήτοις—active. See c. 3, 4.

βιαίοτερον—‘not without a struggle,’ with considerable diffieulty.
