οἵ—‘seeing that we.’

ἐπὶ τὸν αὐτόν—contrasted with πολλῇ παραινέσεἰ. The same remarks will do for all, and they need not be long.

καλῶς λεχθέντες—‘plausible,’ not without a side reference to the Sicilian rhetoric. It is the habit of Thuc. to represent a general as answering the arguments of the enemy's leader, as though they were contending in an assembly.
