τοῖς Ἕλλησι—the dat. of agent with other parts than perf. of pass. is not uncommon in Thuc.

ἀνδραγαθίαν—in remaining true to Athens.

οὐ . . ἐπεδείξατε—‘you have now shown not to belong to your nature.’ Thuc. does not use ἐπιδεικνύναι in this sense elsewhere, but other authors, e.g. the orators, do. It is prob. unnecessary to read ἀπεδείξατε or ὐπεδείξατε. Steup renders ‘you showed afterwards.’

ἐξηλέγχθη ἐς τὸ ἀληθές—‘has been conclusively demonstrated.’
