οἷάπερ. Cf. c. 84, § 3, οἷα δὴ ναῦται.

καί τινες καὶ τῶν ἄλλων κ.τ.λ. i.e. the respectable part of the sailors and rowers, who were of inferior standing to the soldiery. Hence ἀνθρώπων rather than ἀνδρῶν. Jowett's ‘some men of position’ takes a different view.

καὶ οὐ μόνον τὸ στρατιωτικόν objected to by Kruger and P-S as a redundancy, and for a fancied suspiciousness in the use of στρατιωτικόν. The latter objection is nought, in view of the frequency of τὸ ναυτικόν, τὸ ξυμμαχικόν, τὸ ὁπλιτικόν, etc. The former is partly met by the consideration that Thucydides is strongly emphasising a certain fact.

οὔτε . . . τε without the usual contrast. The second member is an amplification of the notion of the first.

τό τε διδόμενον κ.τ.λ. sc. λαμβάνοιεν.

ἀπαλλάξεται ὅθεν κ.τ.λ. i.e. ἐκεῖσε (or ἐς τοιοῦτον τόπον) ὅθεν, ‘to some place from which they could get maintenance.’

ἕξει Cf. c. 86, § 7.

ἐπιφέροντα ὀργὰς = ‘morigerantem.’ χαριζόμενον καὶ συγχωροῦντα, Schol. In i. 140 ὀργῇ = ‘mood,’ though determined by the context. Cf. iii. 82, πρὸς τὰ παρόντα τὰς ὀργὰς τῶν πολλῶν ὁμοιοῖ; Pind. P. ii. 141, ἀλωπέκων ὀργαῖς ἴκελοι.

δι᾽ ἴδια κέρδη Cf. c. 50, § 3, ἐπὶ ἰδίοις κέρδεσι.
