τὰς δύο καὶ τριάκοντα. In c. 30, § 2, the Athenians sail to Chios with thirty ships and some transports, and in c. 34 they lose three by shipwreck. Either the transports count as five, or else there is an addition from some source not stated. The former seems to be the case from c. 62, § 2, ναυσὶν . . . ὦν καὶ στρατιώτιδες ἦσαν.

ἐναυμάχησαν sc. οἱ Χῖοι καὶ οἱ Ἀθηναῖοι.

οὐκ ἔλασσον ἔχοντες. σχόντες of Vat. is less good. The present is ‘like νικῶντες’ (P-S) and is regular. Cf. iv. 25, ἐν τῇ ναυμαχίᾳ . . . οὐκ ἔλασσον ἔχοντες . . . παρεκομίσθησαν, where all MSS. agree. So i. 105, etc.
