Ἀδύνατα—the plur. points to the details of a com- plicated action.

ἄνευ—c. 70, 4.

παρ᾽ ἐκείνοις—cf. c. 21, 3.

εἷεν—the infin. is usual after γὰρ on continuing Or. Obliqua, and this is the only instance of the opt. in Thuc. See also on c. 80, 1, M. T. 675.

οὐκ ἐπιτρέπωσι—i.e. to remain neutral.

ἔνορκοι—‘being included in the treaty in consequence of the stipulation that the Plataeans should admit both.’

πειράσωσι—in the sense of πειρῶμαι. Cf. c. 19, 1, 77, 2. Several MSS. read πειράσουσι, and the fut. indic. after a verb of fearing is occasionally found, as Aristoph. Eccles. 465, Plat. Rep. V. p. 451 A. But there is no case in Thuc.
