πρός τε— “with reference to.” Freeman well says that we must remember the old εὐτυχία of Nicias. This remembrance it was which increased the vexation of the troops.

ἀρρωστίαν—medical term. Here in moral sense, as in III. 15.2.

ἀχθομένους—two reasons are given: (1) νόσῳ ἐπιέζοντο, (2) τὰ ἄλλα ἀνέλπιστα . . . ἐφαίνετο.
