3, 4. τῷ διδόναι, by making gifts.

5. δυνάμεων, referring to στρατο- πέδῳ (3): see note on §234.1.

6. ταῦτα (i.e. δυνάμεις): cf. κατὰ τὴν στρατηγίαν (§ 212.8).

7. τῷ διαφθαρῆναι μὴ, in the matter of being corrupted or not, far more expressive than τῷ μὴ διαφθαρῆναι. This corresponds to τῶν μὲν δυνάμεων, in place of a clause with δέ. Cf. XIX. 4, and 7, ὑπέρ γε τοῦ προῖκα μή.

8. ὠνούμενος: conative, he who would buy. Cf. § 239.5.

9. μὴ λαβὼν καὶ διαφθαρεὶς (Σ, L.1) = ὃς μὴ ἔλαβε καὶ διεφθάρη, better than μηδὲ διαφθαρεὶς (vulg.), as it more closely unites the corruption with the bribe, he who refused to take the bribe and be corrupted.
