παρὰ τοσοῦτον . . . μὴ περιπεσεῖν. The μὴ is not essential. Cf. Isoc. 388 E, παρὰ μικρὸν ἦλθεν ἀποθανεῖν. Yet as compared with c. 76, § 4, παρ᾽ ἐλάχιστον ἦλθε . . . ἀφελέσθαι, it may be noted that in the present place the subject desires not to do the thing which he comes very near doing, while there the subject desires to do the thing.

περιπεσεῖν not περιτσχεῖν. The Athenians had thirty ships and a force of hoplites, and were at an advantage.
