17. αολυμβῶσιν. This and the next example are given also in Lach. 193 B ff. Sauppe thinks that the object of such diving (an art in which the Greeks were very expert: see Thuc. IV. 26. 8) may have been to clean the wells and the like.

21. τίνες δὲ πέλτας ἔχοντες. See Introduction, p. xxxii.

24. αὐτοὶ ἑαυτῶν. The notion ‘than’ is expressed twice: see note on Crito, 44C καίτοι τίς ἂν αἰσχίων εἴη ταύτης δόξα δοκεῖν κτλ., and cf. below, 350Eand (with Sauppe) Hdt. VIII. 86 ἐγένοντομακρῷ ἀμείνονες αὐτοὶ ἑωυτῶν πρὸς Εὐβοίῃ.
