μηδέ τῳ—here and again at c. 67, 2 there should undoubtedly be only a comma before μηδέ. Thuc. never uses οὐδέ, μηδέ=‘and not,’ unless a neg. clause precedes; and it is quite plain from what precedes—οὐκ ἄδικος αὔτη ἀξίωσις, viz. χείρους ἡγεῖσθαι, εἰ τύχοιεν—that . . οὐκ ἦν and μηδέ τῳ χείρους δόξωμεν εἶναι adhere closely together.

ἐν τοῖς δεινοῖς—for Athens; often used of the troubles of war.
