τότε ὅτε—both this and τότε ὅταν are fairly frequent. οἱ πρῶτοι π—c. 6, 3; 8, 1. ἔς τε—answered by καὶ ἰδίᾳ. τὸ ἐν Ἔρυκι—founded, according to legend, by Aeneas. Aen. V. 759. ὄντα ἀργυρᾶ—Grote and Freeman understand ‘silver-gilt,’ but this can hardly be right, unless ἐπάργυρα ‘overlaid with silver,’ or ὑπάργυρα ‘silver overlaid with gold,’ be read. With άργυρᾶ the sense must be that, being silver, the number was imposing, though the value was comparatively small. αἰτησάμενοι—‘borrowing.’ Lys. 24 § 12 after ἀλλοτρίοις ἵπποις χρῆσθαι speaks of οἱ ᾐτημένοι ἵπποι.
