Ἀθηναῖοι μὲν κ.τ λ.—chiasmus again. αὐτοῖς—after τῇ αὐτῇ. ἔτι—with νομίμοις. Λήμνιοι—the allies of Athens are enumerated thus: (1) Colonists § 2; (2) Euboea § 4; (3) Cylades § 4; (4) Asia Minor §§ 4-6; (5) the islands off north-west coast of Greece § 7; (6) Peloponnesians and μισθοφόροι §§ 8-10; (7) allies in Italy and Sicily § 11. Lemnos and Imbros were secured for Athenian cleruchs by Miltiades, and these two with Scyros were regarded as very peculiarly the possessions of the A. in the north. οἳ τότε Αἴγιναν εἶχον—i.e. the A. cleruchs placed there in 431 B.C., when the Aeginetans were expelled by A., and settled by Sparta in Thyrea, the border-land between Argolis and Laconia. Ἑστιαιῆς—taken by A. for cleruchs after the reduction of Euboea by Pericles in 445. ἄποικοι—i.e. the κληροῦχοι had by now quite supplanted the older population and taken its name, and were regarded as owners, like the possessores. ξυνεστράτευσαν—ingressive, ‘took the field with them.’
