τοῖς μὲν ὀλίγοις . . τὸν δὲ δῆμον—the oligarchical government had caused the revolt.

οἷς γ᾽ ἐξῆν—as this sentence refers especially to the δῆμος, it would be better, perhaps, to put πάντες . . ἐπέθεντο in a parenthesis—unless, with Stahl, we understand πάντες (οί τοῦ δήμου) and ὁμοίως (τοῖς ὀλίγοις).

πάλιν ἐν τῇ πόλει εἶναι—‘reinstated in their rights.’ For the sense of πόλις cf. IV. 106 πόλεώς τε. στερισκόμενοι.

βεβαιότερον—sc. τοῦ μεθ᾽ ἡμῶν κινδύνου.
