113. 5. ἐγγενομένου—cf. c. 80. 4.

6. φευγόντων—after the battle of Oenophyta, the democratic party in Boeotia had driven out the anti-Athenian oligarclis. But the exiles had recovered some of their lost power.

13. καὶ ἀνδραποδισαντες—there is no sufficient ground for omitting these words (see crit. note); that a scribe copied them from c. 98 is very unlikely. It is remarkable that Athens should have taken such drastic measures against a place in the heart of Greece and so near.

14. καταστήσαντες—sc. ἐν αὐτῇ, unless ἐγ- should be read (if Thuc. wrote in the old Attic alphabet, ἐγ would be nearly identical with the last two letters of φυλακήν); cf. c. 115. 3.

[2] 15. Κορωνείᾳ—in this engagement Clineas, father of Alcibiades, was killed; and Tolmides himself.

17. γνώμης—i.e. sympathised with the oligarchs.

[4] 22. οἱ ἄλλοι—the other Boeotians, as well as those who had been driven out.
