μὰ Δία: introduces a neg. statement, but does not answer ἔχεις negatively. κατὰ πόδας: cursu, by chasing them. Cf. iii. 11. 8; Cyr. i. 6. 40; Cyn. v. 29. ὥσπερ οἱ ἐχθροί: we might expect another animal in the third place, as κάπροι (suggested by Ernesti). Perhaps οἱ ἐχθροί has strayed back from the following sentence. ἐχθρός and πολέμιος are properly distinguished, like inimicus and hostis in Latin; but occasionally confused, as here. Cf. οἱ πατέρες ἡμῶν τὸν Μῆδον ἐχθρὸν ἔχοντες Thuc. vi. 17.
