Ἀργείων. The Argives have taken no part since the previous year (c. 27, § 6).

τῷ ἐν τῇ Σάμῳ τῶν Ἀθηναίων δήμῳ The full title implies formal recognition. The Athenians in Samos are considered by the Argives to represent the proper democratic government with which to treat.

ὥστε βοηθεῖν Cf. c. 45, § 3 for ὥστε. Lit. ‘making favourable propositions with a view to assisting them.’

ἐπαινέσας perhaps with the notion (frequent with ἐπαινῶ) of ‘thanks’ for assistance which is declined, at least for the present.
