οἱ γὰρ κ.τ.λ. This serves as the subject to ἀφίκοντο, though it involves a change of subject in οὗτοι. But the writerintended some other construction in what follows than οὐδὲν διέφερεν αὐτοῖς, e.g. ἤθελον or κρεῖττον ἐνόμιζον.

τῶν τόκων sc. τῶν ἐς Ἀθήνας, ‘giving up the interest due from Rhodes to Athens.’

δεῦρ᾽ ἐπαναπλεῖν ‘To put out to sea and continue the voyage to Athens’; ‘commence a new voyage to Athens’ (Kennedy). ‘Rursus evehi in altum, huc ut appellerent’ (G. H. Schaefer).
