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 ἢ 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 ἢ μή. 8. ὁ ὠνούμενος: conative, he who would buy. Cf. § 239.5. 9. ὁ 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.
