οὐκ ἂν . . . βουλομένοις εἶναι—the same idiom is found in Lat. with volenti esse. The only instance of any other verb than volo is in Tac. An. I. 59 ut quibusque bellum invitis aut cupientibus erat.

εἶναι—rare use of infin. after λέγω in O.O.: even here εἶπον implies a formal notice, as also in II. 13 λέγων τὴν ἰσχὺν αὐτοῖς ἀπὸ τούτων εἶναι. But the infin. is occasionally used loosely with λέγω.

ἐπικαταβάντες . . . πρὸς τὴν θάλασσαν—the object of partic. and verb is, as usual, accommodated to the partic.

Λοκρῶν—they had refused to receive the A. from the first.
