καὶ τὰ μέχρι Εὐβοίας. Vat. has Βοιωτίας by an error of general resemblance, and some editors accept it under a misappre hension. No trouble would have been caused by the text if the inclusive force of μέχρι had been remembered, ‘up to and embracing Euboea.’ Cf. c. 43, § 3. Plat. Menex. 239 E, Δαρεῖος πεζῇ μὲν μέχρι Σκυθῶν τὴν ἀρχὴν ὡρίσατο. Boeotia had always limited the Athenian empire on that side, so that τὰ μέχρι Βοιωτίας would mean nothing, whereas ‘everything up to and including Euboea’ means that even the Athenian possessions right up to Attica itself would be lost.
