σίδηρον—iron tools. περιήγγελλον—as in II. 85 ναῦς περιήγγελλον κατὰ πόλεις. We expect παρασκευάζεσθαι or πέμψαι to follow. ἐπιτειχισμόν—of Deeelea. ἐπικουρίαν—esp. used of a foreign (or mercenary) force. προσηνάγκαζον—se. πορίζειν, the same brachylogy as with διανοοῦμαι V. 80, οἶμαι c. 66.3, ὁρῶ V. 80. ὄγδοον καὶ δέκατον—contrast VIII. 6 ἑνὸς δέον εἰκοστόν. The periphrastie forms are preferred in prose, esp. for 19, 29, etc. ἐτελεύτα τῷδε—the epanaphora of the verb in this formula is prob. accidental. The formal close is in aeeordance with the Gk. habit of ending quietly.
