ὑπομεῖναι—often contrasted with φεύγειν, either of soldiers or litigants who stand a trial; sometimes it is joined with καρτερεῖν. It generally implies danger.

ἐπιθέσθαι τῇ πείρᾳ—a graphic expression for setting to work with a will.

οἱ—the only case of the sing. of this pron. at all frequent in prose. Even this is usually avoided by the Orators.

ξυντομωτάτην κ.τ.λ.he thought that (therein) lay the means of finishing the war most quickly. (Classen rightly objects to inserting ταύτην after ξυντομωτάτην with Madvig. It is perfeetly natural to supply τὸ ἐπιθέσθαι τῆ̣ πείρᾳ with ἡγεῖτο.)
