θέρους μεσοῦντος ἤδη—cf. Isaeus 6, 14 τῇ στρατιᾳ ἀφ̓ οὗ ἐξέπλευσαν είς Σικελίαν ἤδη ἐστὶ δύο καὶ πεντήκοντα ἔτη, ἀπὸ Ἀρειμνήστου ἄρχοντος. With this date the Schol. on Aristoph. Birds hypoth. 11 agrees. Arimnestus went out of office on the last day of Scirophorion (June-July) 415. Hence the date of the departure is about the end of June.

εἴρητο—often used of military instructions.

Κέρκυραν . . Ἰαπυγίαν—the regular route from Greece to Italy (see on c. 13 § 1) in the time of Thuc. The Durazzo (Epidamnus)-Brindisi route dates from about 200 B.C.

διαβαλοῦσιν—found only in Herod., Thuc., and tragedy in this sense, and in late anthors.
