ἐπελπίζων, ‘hoping besides’ Cf. ἐπιθεραπεύων, c. 47, § 1. The verb has a causal sense in c. 1, § 1, but one similar to this in Eur. Hipp. 1011.

καὶ is to be expressed by emphasis on the verb ‘that they could change.’

μεταβαλεῖται The subject is perhaps δῆμος, though Dukas says ὀλιγαρχία δηλονότι. Cf. μεταθέσθαι, c. 53, § 3; μεταβαλλομένους, c. 90, § 1; i. 71, etc. A people is said μεταβάλλειν τὸ ἔθος (i. 123) or τὴν πολιτείαν (Aristot. Pol. iv. 5, 2), or, without the object, μεταβάλλεσθαι.
