ἐκ τῆς Σάμου ‘returning from Samos,’ where they were in c. 86. κἀκείνοις )( καὶ Πελοποννησίων. τοὺς πολλοὺς τῶν μετεχόντων Thucydides does not distinguish clearly between the 400 and the oligarchical party generally. Grote (pt. ii. c. lxii.) says, ‘there began to arise, even in the bosom of the Four Hundred, an opposition minority affecting popular sentiment.’ The 400 are specially dealt with in c. 92, § 6. Here τοὺς πολλοὺς κ.τ.λ. cannot refer to such a minority, but belongs to the wider oligarchical party.
