πεπόμφασι δὲ καὶ . . . καὶ . . . οἴχεται—chiasmus is very commion in Thuc., and is quite a feature of his style.

τὰς μὲν . . . ἀπὸ δὲ τῶν—the iegular, but not universal order when a preposition occurs with μὲν or δὲ is that the particle should follow the preposition immediately; e.g. Andoc. I. 29 περὶ μὲν τῶν μυστηρίων . . . περὶ δὲ τῶν ἀναθημάτων. In VI. 76.4 οἱ μὲν is in a remarkable position.

καὶ πείσων . . . καὶ στρατιὰν—the double καὶ marks the balancing of the clauses, as in ὥσπερ καὶ . . . οὕτω καὶ.
