ἐπεξέτασιν—‘a final muster’ of all the contingents.

ὁρμιεῖσθαί τε καὶ στρατ—See crit. note. The two tenses recur with μέλλω in c. 99, 2 ἔμελλον ἄξειν καὶ . . γίγνεσθαι: but there the infins. are separated, and γίγνομαι is in its nature inceptive, and can appropriately be combined with a fut. infin. In Demosth. 21, 55, quoted by Stahl, we have τε μέλλων νικᾶν καὶ πάντων ὕστατος ὁρμιεῖσθαι: but again the infins. are much more distinct than here. Hence, unless it be possible to draw a distinction between μέλλω with pres. and fut., it is best to read στρατοπεδεύσεσθαι.

τρία μέρη—internal accus., ‘into three parts.’

ἐν ταῖς καταγωγαῖς—‘whenever they landed.’
