Ἀποδωτοῖς—this tribe is to the NE. of Naupactus.

Ὀφιονεῦσι—N. of the Apodoti.

Εὐρυτᾶσιν—N. and E. of the Ophioneis. All three tribes belong to New Aetolia, Αἰτωλία ἐπίκτητος, as distinct from Old Aetolia, ἀρχαία, of the Iliad. (All that can be known about the tribes will be found in Woodhouse, Aetolia.)

καὶ τἆλλα προσχωρήσειν “refers back to the expression τὸ ἄλλο ἠπειρωτικὸν τὸ ταύτῃ—by which we must understand the Messenians (or Thucydides) to mean that the Athenian ‘sphere of influence’ in Western Hellas would be enormously extended if the three Aetolian tribes were subjugated. It would be diffienlt, however, to state precisely what tribes were in the historian's mind” (Woodhouse).
