τὰ ἐν τῇ Σ. βελτίω—sc. εἶναι. ἀγγέλλω ordinarily follows the same rule as λέγω, i e. it takes ὅτι, etc., and moods when it implies no command; infin. when it implies command: but Thuc. does not keep strictly to these rules ἀγγέλλω sometimes takes partic. on analogy of verbs of showing. Demosthenes has Φίλιππος ἠγγέλθη ἀσθενῶν.

πέμψιν . . ποιήσασθαι—for the periphrases of noun and ποιοῦμαι and its pass. γίγνομαι, see Index. προτέραν refers to the sending of Gylippus and Pythen.

ἐν ὁλκάσι—order perverted for the sake of emphasis, as often. The sending of troops in merchant ships was unusual.

παρεσκευάζοντο . . . ἀποστελοῦντες—the omission of ὡς with παρασκευάζομαι is very rare except in Thue., who has it several times. Xen. Hel. IV. 1.41 παρεσκευάζετο πορευσόμενος.

τῷ αὐτῷ τ.—i.e. ἐν ὁλκάσι, with πέμψοντες.
