Θουκυδίδου . . . πόλεως i.e ‘the proxenus of Athens at Pharsalus,’ not of Pharsalus at Athens, since the proxenus of one state in another must be a citizen of the latter. τῆς πόλεως, moreover, naturally refers to Athens.

ἐφεδρευόντων ἔτι. ἐγγὺς of most MSS is easier, but not on that account the more probable. In iv. 71 ἐγγὺς ἐφεδρευόντων occurs. ἔιτ = insuper: ‘with the enemy still to be reckoned with’ by the victor of the two parties.

σφῶν αὐτῶν = ἀλλήλων, but with stronger reflexiveness for antithesis to πολεμίων. Cf. c. 86, § 7, πρὸς σφᾶς αὐτοὺς . . . ξυμβῆναι.
