ἢν δὲ . . . καταλύειν . . . καταλύεσθαι, sc. τὸν πόλεμον. Both active and middle are used of ending a war and coming to terms. καταλύειν (v. 23, in a treaty), καταλύειν τὸν πόλεμον (v. 47, a treaty), but καταλύοιντο (iv. 18), καταλελυμένους τὸν ἐκεῖ πόλεμον (vi. 36). In the present passage, in view of the sudden change, καταλύεσθαι should probably be taken as impersonal passive.
