δ᾽ οὖν—doubtful statements are dismissed and the narrative of facts resumed. οὐδὲν ἀδικήσαντες—contrast οὐδὲν ἀδικοῦντες=‘guiltless.’ τὰ ἐκ τῆς χώρας ἐσεκομίσαντο —the preposition attracted to the verb, for ἐν. Cf. c. 13, 2, 14, 1. ἀπέκτειναν—assuredly justified as an act of reprisal, but most impolitic, as calculated to provoke Thebes and Sparta. εἷς αὐτῶν ἦν—the so-called partitive gen. is often used thus without εἷς, which is wanting in C. Cf. I. 85 εἷς τῶν ἐφόρων τότε ὤν, v. 59, 5; VIII. 39, 2. πρὸς ὅν ἔπραξαν —so I. 131, I; IV. 114, 3. This is only a variant for πράσσειν with dat., as IV. 110, 2; v. 76, 3. But when many persons are dealt with, πράσσειν ἐς is also used, as I. 132, 4. The same three constructions follow λέγειν: πρός, Andoc. I. 48; dat., ib. I. 69; ἐς, ib., l.c. Eur. Hec. 303 εἷπον εἰς ἅπαντας, ‘proposed in the general assembly.’ οἱ προδιδόντες —see on c. 2, 4.
