λαβόντες—if genuine, best considered pleonastic (with Stahl), as we say ‘took and brought.’ Some think it a gloss on εἴ τινα λάβοιεν below. To supply τὴν πόλιν (with L. Herbst) is forced, and involves an artificial, and highly improbable, explanation of the meaning. See crit. note.

τοὺς Μεσσηνίους—see c. 75, 1.

περιπλεῦσαι—from the harbour of Alcinous. The oligarchs who had been induced to embark would now be separated from their comrades in the Heraeum and the agora.

ἐπλήρωσαν—c. 80, 1.

ἀπεχρῶντο—very rare in this sense; cf. διαχρῆσθαι in c. 36.
