Περικλεῖ: third son of the great Pericles. His mother was of foreign birth, the beautiful and accomplished Aspasia of Miletus, and he was consequently not entitled to Athenian citizenship; but after the death of his two brothers he was legitimated by the Athenians and accepted as a citizen, for his father's sake. He was one of the six generals who were executed for their failure to rescue the shipwrecked crews after the battle of the Arginusae. See on i. 1. 18, and cf. Plutarch Pericles 37.

τοῦ πάνυ Περικλέους: the celebrated Pericles. So οἱ πάνυ τῶν στρατιωτῶν Thuc. viii. 1. 1.

στρατηγήσαντος: see on βουλεύσας i. 1. 18.

βούλει, ἐπισκοπῶμεν: as in ii. 1. 1.

ὅπου ἤδη τὸ δυνατόν ἐστι: wherein now the possibility lies.
