Οἱ δὲ ὕστερον—answering ἐκεῖνος μὲν in 8 above. So ἴσοι ... ὄντες corresponds to δυνατὸς ὢν. αὐτοὶ ... πρὸς ἀλλὴλους—might have been αὐτοὶ πρὸς ἁτούς. Cf. c. 5, 5 on διαβουλευόμενων. καθ᾽ ἡδονὰς—depends on ἐνδιὁόναι, ‘so as to suit any popular whim.’

καὶ τὰ πράγματα—i.e. to gain their object they were ready not only to flatter the people, but even to place the administration of the state entirely in their hands.

ἐνδιδόναι—after ἐτράποντο ‘they set themselves to.’
