Ἄνδριοι καὶ Τήνιοι κ.τ.λ. All these peoples are mentioned among the allies of Athens in vii. 57. The contingents here mentioned had been brought by Peisander (ἐπ᾽ αὐτὸ τοῦτο ἥκοντες), v. c. 65, § 1.

τῶν ἐποίκων See ii. 27. The Athenians drove out the Aeginetans (B.C. 431), καὶ τὴν Αἴγιναν ἀσφαλέστερον ἐφαίνετο αὑτῶν πέμψαντας ἐποίκους ἔχειν: καὶ ἐξέπεμψαν ὕστερον οὐ πολλῷ ἐς αὐτὴν τοὺς οἰκήτορας. Lysander restored the Aeginetans in B.C. 404. Krüger and P-S eject the relative clause as a gloss, and certainly either τῶν ἐποίκων or οἰκήσοντας would seem to be interpolated. But inasmuch as the actual number of Carystians is mentioned, while in the text Αἰγινητῶν depends but vaguely on the notion of τινες (suggested from the more definite Καρυστίων τριακόσιοι), it seems very probable that οἰκήσοντας conceals a numeral, e.g. ὀγδοήκοντα.
