ἐστασίαζέ τε—this passage down to the end of c. 83 is severely criticized by Dionysius Hal. de Thuc. iud. cc 29 f. for its artificial and far-fetched expressions

τὰ ἐφυστερίζοντά που—‘the later cases,’ the cities that followed the example of discord set by others; a strange expression, as Dionysius says, but occasioned by τὰ τῶν πόλεων. Notice that ποῦἔν τινι πόλει.

πολὺ ἐπέφερε—‘brought on much,’ i.e. carried much further.


τῶν . . ἀτοπίᾳ—lit. ‘through extreme ingenuity in their enterprises and strangeness in their revenges.’
