οὐκοῦν ὥσπερ κτλ. Cf. Soph. O. T. 961 σμικρὰ παλαιὰ σώματ᾽ εὐνάζει ῥοπή. The Platonic simile is imitated by Arist. Pol. Z 6. 1320^{b} 33 ff. and may also, as Stallbaum thinks, have been in Demosthenes' mind when he wrote Ol. II 21.

ἔξωθεν ἐπαγομένων κτλ. A familiar feature in the history of Greek revolutions: cf. Whibley Gk Olig. p. 52 and (for examples) Gilbert Gr. Staatsalt. II passim.
