οἱ λιθοβόλοι—Wasse and Bloomfield quote several passages to show that these men threw stones and are therefore distinct from slingers.

οἷα—sc. ποιεῖν. Cf. II. 54 οἷα εἰκὸς ἀνεμνήσθησαν, and ὡς εἰκός.

ἐποίουν τροπάς—‘put one another to flight.’ ποιεῖν τροπήν is to ‘cause a flight’ where the enemy returns to fight; ποιεῖσθαι τ. is ‘to defeat’ outright.

μάντεις—some are known to have gone with the A. to Sicily.

ὀτρύνω and its cmpds. are Ionic.
