οἱ τοῦ δήμου προστάται—a bronze plate found on the site of the Corcyrean Agora and now in the Brit. Mus. contains a decree of the Corcyrean Assembly (ἁλία) appointing an Athenian ‘proxenus’ of Corcyra. Among the Corcyrean authorities mentioned in the decree, which is assigned to the 4th cent. B.C., oceurs προστάτας Γνάθιος. The προστάται therefore appear to have been a board of magistrates in Corcyra (Anc. Gr. Inscr. in the Brit. Mus. Pl. ii. p. 50).

ξυμπέμψειν—sc. ἔφασαν, by an idiom to which Thuc. is partial.
