Ἐπὶ τοῖσδε ξυνέβησαν, ἐξελθεῖν—cf. IV. 16 ναῦς παρα- δοῦναι κομίσαντας Ἀθηναίοις ... αἱ μὲν σπονδαὶ ἐπὶ τούτοις ἐγένοντο. In VIII. 18 the imperative is used throughout the terms. ‘The men ... to go out.’ The inf. is not for ἐπὶ τῷ ἐξελθεῖν, but is the use noticed in c. 13, 1. ξὺν ἑνὶ—cum singulis vestimentis, Livy, XXI. 12. γυναῖκας δὲ—probably Thuc. is quoting the actual terms; so he is not responsible for what seems at first an odd correction of γυναῖκας above, but is quite suited to the cumbrous diction of officials. ‘With one garment, except the women.’
