οὐδὲν ἀπόκρυφον: no secret.

ἂν χείρους γενέσθαι: depends on δοκεῖ μοι understood after ἀλλά, or δοκοῦσιν may be supplied, making the const. personal. For an example of both consts. in the same sent., cf. ἔδοξεν αὐτῷ βροντῆς γενομένης σκηπτὸς πεσεῖν εἰς τὴν πατρῴαν οἰκίαν, καὶ ἐκ τούτου λάμπεσθαι πᾶσαν An. iii.1.11 See G. 1522, 2; H. 944 a.

εἰ δὲ μή: and if not (that).

τοὺς πρωτεύοντας: i.e. the Lacedaemonians. Xenophon never omits an opportunity to praise Spartan institutions.

τούτοις τὰ αὐτά: the same things that they do. For the abridged comparison, see on τῶν ἄλλων i. 1. 3.

εἰ δ᾽ ἐπιμελέστερον: sc. χρῷντο.

καί: even.
