τοῖς πολεμίοις—thinking of the Peloponnesians. That Athens should show wisdom (1) calmly judging the guilty, (2) acquitting the democratic party, would be more effective against her enemies than a hasty exercise of brute strength, of vis consili expers.

πρὸς τοὺς ἐναντίους is to be taken with κρείσσων ἐστί.

ἐπιών—‘if he goes to work.’
