ἐν καιροῖς οἷς—i.e. ἐν οἷς, according to a common idiom, e.g. Dem. XIX. 342 ἐπὶ τῆς αὐτῆς (ἐφ᾽) ἦσπερ νῦν ἐξουσίας . . μενεῖ. To ἐν καιροῖς, as to μείζω, the partic. must be supplied; cf. c. 30, 1: contrast c. 47, 5.

μᾶλλον—i.e. than now when their services are forgotten.

τὰ ξύμφορα . . αὑτοῖς—(‘arrange terms) which were to their own advantage in view of the invasion.’ πρὸς τὴν . belongs to ξύμφορα rather than to πράσσοντες: cf. II. 3 ἕκαστον ἐφαίνετο πρὸς τὰ παρόντα ξύμφορον ἔσεσθαι.

ἀσφαλείᾳ—‘securely,’ as in c. 82 ἀσφαλείᾳ δὲ τὸ ἐπιβουλεύεσθαι, ‘to make plans in security,’ Soph. OT. 51 ἀλλ᾽ ἀσφαλείᾳ τήνδ᾽ ἀνόρθωσον πόλιν.
