Ἐπὶ τῶν—see c. 80, 2

ἱππαγωγοῖς—this is the first occasion on which the Athenians used transports. (The Persians used them, Herod. VI. 48.) They were triremes (IV. 42; VI. 43); in 424 they were sufficiently novel to provide Aristoph. with a joke, Eq. 599. It was very important to have cavalry in the plundering expeditions, in order to be able to penetrate as far inland as possible.

Χῖοι καὶ Λ.— cf. c. 9, 4.

ναυσίν—the dat. of accompaniment, only used in naval and military phrases.
