περὶ τοῦ . . . σωθῆναι . . . τὴν ἐπιμέλειαν—like ἀγών, κίνδυνος περὶ with noun. ἐκείνους—again notice this use of ἐκεῖνος. 9 ἀπό τε τῶν παρόντων—in consequence of the present circumstances. καλὸν σφίσιν κ.τ.λ.—the success would appear to the Greeks glorious to them. There is a metaphor here from the Olympic games. ἐς τοὺς Ἕλληνας is used with φανεῖσθαι just as it is with λέγειν when large bodies are addressed. The Greeks are here spectators of the contest. ἐλευθεροῦσθαι—the pres. is here used in a vivid sense for the future. οὐ γὰρ ἔτι—this did not prove to be the case at once. Cf. II. 65.12 ὅμως δέκα ἔτη ἀντεῖχον. καὶ αὐτοὶ—co-ordinate with τούς τε γὰρ αὐτῶν—neut., used as in c. 55.2
