οἵδε μὲν—here ὅδε refers to what precedes. This is very rare in prose except in Herod. and Thuc. Cf. c. 58.2. So with τοσόσδε in c. 57.11; 58.3; 59.1; 78.1.

Ἱμεραῖοι—see on c. 1.1

μόνοι—i e. they are the only Greeks there.

οἰκοῦσιν—used elsewhere in proximity to νέμεσθαι. These small things show how ancient authors, like modern ones, unconsciously have their mannerisms.
