ἐπισίτιοι . ἐπίσιτοι (which Cobet and Hartman call for) would be more in accordance with the analogy of παράσιτος etc.; but the longer form is established by fragments of comic poets (ap. Ath. VI 246 F—247 A, where ἐπισιτίων in the fragment of Timocles defies emendation).

οἱ ἄλλοι: sc. ἐπίκουροι or mercenaries.

ἀποδημῆσαι. Regulations about ἀποδημία are laid down in Laws 949 E ff.

οἷα δὴ κτλ. For οἷα Hermann once conjectured οἷ: neatly, but οἷ is too precise. οἷα δή=οἷα δὴ ἀναλώματα. With οἱ εὐδαίμονες δοκοῦντες εἶναι cf. III 406 C. It is εὐδαιμονία in the popular sense of ‘having a good time’ which Adimantus complains is denied to the guardians.
