ἑπτά—Selinus, Syracuse, Gela, Acragas, Messene, Himera, Carnarina. Acrae and Casmenae are not reckoned, as being merely outposts of Syracuse, using the same coinage and possessing no separate history. τοῖς πᾶσιν—cf. II. 36 τὴν πόλιν τοῖς πᾶσι παρεσκευάσαμεν. ὁμοιοτρόπως μάλιστα—‘so as to closely resemble our own power.’ δυνάμει is not ‘the armanent’ that is to be sent out, but includes all the details that make up the power of A., in the same sense as δύναμιν of c. 21. Cf. VII. 55 πόλεσι . . ὁμοιοτρόποις ἐπελθόντες, δημοκρατουμέναις τε ὤσπερ καὶ αὐτοὶ καὶ ναῦς καὶ ἵππους καὶ μεγέθη ἐχούσαις. ἔνεισι—i.e. in Selinus and Syracuse.
