ἀντίπαλα — internal accus., defining the verb. Hence=ἀντίπαλον ναυμαχίαν. The plur. presents the details. ὡς—the only case in which Thuc. uses ὡς for ὥστε. The use is common in Aeschylus, Sophocles, Herod., Xen. αὐτοὺς ἑκατέρους—the nom. would be more regular; but the subjects are not really identical, since the infin. clause is meant to be general. It appears from what follows that the A. did not finally consider themselves victors. αὐτῶν=τῶν ναυαγίων. For the two gens. cf. I. 25 κατὰ τὴν Φαιάκων προενοίκησιν τῆς Κερκύρας. See Classen on III. 116.6. οὐκέτι—note (1) the adv. qualifying the noun: it is common with the neg., and verbal nouns often take the construction of the verb, as II. 65 ὑπὸ τοῦ πρώτου ἀνδρὸς ἀρχή: (2) the use of οὐκέτι, denoting a change of purpose or a disappointment of expectation.
