καὶ ἄλλους κτλ—i.e. καὶ ἄλλους ὁμολογουμένως νῦν μαχιμωτἀτους τῶν ἐκεὶ βαρβἀρων, though the position of βαρβἀρων is awkward.

καὶ Ἴβηρας καὶ ἄλλους is epexegetic of πολλοὺς βαρβάρους. 17

πέριξ πολιορκοῦντες—the fleet would blockade the coasts, while the army would invade the Pel. by land. Athens did not herself possess a large enough army to invade the Pel. effectually, and Pericles had taught that she must be content with making descents upon the coasts.

ἐκ γῆς ἐφορμαῖς—‘by attacks on the land side.’ ἐφορμή, which is rare, is explained by Hesychius as ὅθεν ἄν τις πολέμῳ ἐφορμήσειεν.

ἐντειχισάμενοι=περιτειχίσαντες.
