τὸ πᾶν πλῆθος ‘the body as a whole.’

ἐφοβεῖτο μάλιστα περὶ κ.τ.λ. ‘began to find its chief fears centring on the general safety of the state,’ i.e. instead of on internal dissensions. Cf. τὸ ναυτικόν, τὸ ξυμμαχικόν, etc.

ποῆσαι not ποήσασθαι, but ‘that an assembly should be summoned (or arranged).’ See c. 36, § 2.

Διονυσίῳ sc. ἱερῷ. The orthography (not -είῳ) is shown by the metre in Arist. Frag. 187, τίς ἃν φράσειε ποῦ 'στι τὸ Διονύσιον.
