2. μίκῤ ἀναλῶσαι ἂν... ἐθέλειν, does it seem likely that the rich would have been willing to spend (only) a little to escape doing justice? With οἱ πλούσιοι supply δοκοῦσιν from δοκῶ in l. 1 (see M.T. 754). ἀναλῶσαι depends on ἐθέλειν ἄν, which represents ἤθελον ἄν. τοῦ μὴ ποιεῖν is genitive of purpose (cf. § 100.9).

3. καθυφεῖναι, dropping: cf. κατα- βάλλοντα, § 103.7.

5. συμφέροντα θεῖναι τὸν νόμον: cf. πτηνὰς διώκεις τὰς ἐλπίδας, Eur. frag. 273.—τῷ πεῖραν δεδωκέναι, on the law having given a test of itself (sc. τὸν νόμον αὑτοῦ). See § 195.12, γε μηδὲ πεῖραν ἔδωκε, with note; XXIV. 24, πεῖραν αὑτῶν πολλάκις δεδώκασιν (sc. οἱ νόμοι) (with αὑτ ῶν expressed); Thuc. I. 138.9 (of Themistocles), ἀπὸ τοῦ πεῖραν διδοὺς ξυνετὸς φαίνεσθαι, i.e. on trial. Compare the perfect δεδωκέναι with the timeless aorists which precede (M.T. 109, 96).

6. ἀποστόλων: see § 80.1; and cf. IV. 35, τοὺς δ᾽ ἀποστόλους πάντας ὑμῖν ὑστερίζειν τῶν καιρῶν.

8. ἱκετηρίαν (sc. ῥάβδον), sup- pliant's bough, generally of olive, bound with wool, which a suppliant laid on the altar of a divinity whose succour he invoked.

9. ἐν Μουνιχίᾳ: ἔνθα ἐστὶν ἱερὸν Μουνυχίας Ἀρτέμιδος: κἀκεῖ ἔφευγον οἵτινες τῶν τριηράρχων ἠδικοῦντο, ναῦται τινες τῶν ἐξεταζομένων ἐν τῷ Πειραιεῖ (Schol.). See Lys. XIII. 24, καθίζουσιν ἐπὶ τὸν βωμὸν Μουνιχίασιν. Munychia is the high hill of the peninsula of Piraeus.

10. ἀποστολέων: see Bekk. Anecd. 435, 29: ἀποστολεῖς: δέκα τὸν ἀριθμὸν ἄρχοντες ἦσαν, οἱ ἐπὶ τῆς ἐκπομπῆς τῶν πλεουσῶν τριήρων καὶ τῶν ἀπαγομένων στόλων ἀποδεδειγμένοι. They were chosen for each occasion, and had charge of supplying the trierarchs with rigging and other material for the triremes from the public stores, and of seeing that these were properly restored at the end of the voyage.

10, 11. ἔξω καταλειφθεῖς᾿, aban- doned at sea; αὐτοῦ ἀπελείφθη, was left behind in port.αὐτοῦ, on the spot, i.e. in port, where she was lying: ἐν τῷ λιμένι ἀνεπισκεύαστος (Schol.). See Plat. Rep. 371 C, αὐτοῦ μένοντας περὶ τὴν ἀγοράν.
