οἱ ἕτεροι—sc. ἐνόμισαν. οἵ τε . . . οἵ τ᾽—the double τε shows that the two clauses are exactly parallel. Thuc. is fond of this τε . . . τε joining two concurrent acts. κρατεῖν εἰ μὴ κ.τ.λ.—this is not a mere subtlety. The naval superiority of the A., esp. at Naupactus, had been so repeatedly acknowledged that the Cor. rightly considered that not to be beaten constituted a victory. ὅτι οὐ π. ἐνίκων—the indic. shows that Thuc. states this as a fact: νικῷεν would mean that the A. reflected οὐ νικῷμεν.
