Ξυνίστορες—a solemn word. Aesch. Ag. 1055, Soph. Ant. 542, Eur. Supp. 1174. οὔτε τὴν άρχὴν ἤλθομεν —‘we did not at first attack.’ This is answered by οὔτε νῦν. δὲ—answers ἀδίκως. τὸ ξυνώμοτον—the oath to aid in giving freedom to Greece. It would certainly be supposed that the oaths then taken were only binding in the war against Persia. Cf. c. 72, 1. γῆν τήνδε ἐν ᾗ—the art may be omitted with demonstratives when a relative clause follows. αὐτὴν —c. 4, 5. ἐναγωνίσασθαι—c. 20, 4. Eur. Bacchae, 507 ἐνδυστυχῆσαι ... ἐπιτήδειος. ἤν τι ποιῶμεν—litotes; cf. ἤν τι πάσχῃ ‘in case he die.’ καὶ εἰκότα—the emphatic member, as always when καὶ is inserted between πολὺς and another adj. ἀδικίας—depends on κολάζεσθαι and ὑπάρχουσι. τοῖς ὑ.—these dats. depend on ξυγγνώμονες ἔστε = ξυγχωρήσατε.
