δόξαν . . . ὥστε . . . Cf. c. 45, § 3, ἐδίδασκεν ὥστε . . . πεῖσαι ὥστε ξυγχωρῆσαι; c. 81, § 1, τῆς αὐτῆς γνώμης ἐχόμενος . . . ὥστε . . . So ψηφίζεσθαι ὥστε frequently.

ἀπὸ ξυνόδου lit. ‘as a result of a council meeting.’ Cf. c. 97, § 2, ἀφ᾽ ὧν (ἐκκλησιῶν) νομοθέτας ἐψηφίσαντο; i. 97, ἀπὸ κοινῶν ξυνόδων βουλευόντων. The use of ἀπὸ in e.g. c. 99, ἀπὸ παραγγέλματος αἰφνιδίου ἄρας, is akin.

δώδεκα καὶ ἑκατὸν the ninety-four ships of c. 44, § 2, had been reinforced by others from Chios (c. 63, § 2). It is not possible, however, to keep an exact tally of every ship in the narrative of Thucydides.

Μυκάλης Mycale was the scene of the defeat of the Persians in B.C. 479 (i. 89). The name belongs to the range which ends in Cape Trogilium. According to Steph. Byz. and Scylax there was a town of the name, and something more definite than the range seems to be required here.
