οἱ ἔσπλοι—because the S. now commanded the mouth of the harbour.

διὰ μάχης . . . ἐγίγνοντο—cf. διὰ μάχης ἰέναι II. 11; Eur. Hel. 978. See also on c. 8.3. (See Wecklein on Aesch. PB 121.)

ἔς τε—the τε is not correlative with either of the preceding negs., but simply joins the sentences, this being a use of τε that gradually fell out of Attic prose.
