δι᾽ ἐγγυτάτου ‘with the closest imminence.’

σφῶν with Πειραια . The order is absolutely against joining σφῶν with πολέμιοι, and the sense so gained is of no value. σφῶν τὸν Πειραιᾶ = ‘their own Peiraeus’: the matter is coming home to them. The genitive is the same as in the common forms τῆς Ἀττικῆς ἐς Οἰνόην (ii. 18), etc. Lobeck's εὐθὺ is a natural suggestion, but not needed.
