2. ἀναίσθητοι: see note on § 35.10.

3. πάντ᾽ ἐκεῖνος ἦν: cf. πάντ᾽ ἦν Ἀλέξανδρος, XXXIII. 120; Εὔβοια αὐτοῖς πάντα ἦν, Thuc. VIII. 95; Demetrius iis unus omnia est, Liv. XL. 11.

4. οὐδὲ...βούλοιτο (M.T. 462): ἤκουον is strongly frequentative, like ἡγοῦντο (3), and ἄλλο τι is anything opposed to φίλον, εὐεργέτην, σωτῆρα.

5. ὑφορώμενοι, viewing with sus- picion (ὑπό like sub in suspicio).

7. οὐ...ἐποιεῖτε: most MSS. (but not Σ) add μόνοι. This passage represents the state of mind in which Demosthenes delivered his speech on the Peace (v.) in 346 B.C. See Hist. § 40.

9. [ἄσμενοι, καὶ]: Σ and the newly found Oxyrhynchus papyrus (2nd cent. A.D.) omit these words.—αὐτοὶ... πολεμούμενοι, though they themselves in a certain way had been warred against for a long time: πολεμούμενοι (impf.) is past to ἦγον, which covers the whole time of the peace to 340 B.C. See ἐπολεμοῦντο, § 44.7.
