[3] 14. εὐθὺς τότε—at the time that the tripod was offered.

17. μέντοι—although the offensive inscription was removed.

ἀδίκημα καὶ τότ᾽ ἐδόκει εἶναι(this act) was thought even at that time to be a crime. The subject of ἐδόκει is αὐτό, the act of having the couplet inseribed. τότ᾽ was first adopted by Classen for τοῦτ᾽, and καὶ ἐπεί γε δὴ ἐν τούτῳ καθειστήκει requires it as a contrast of time: also there is no point in καὶ τοῦτ᾽, as no other offence of P. in earlier times has been mentioned to justify καί. Stem inserts τοῦτο after άδίκημα, but this is not necessary.

18. ἐπεί γε δὴ ἐν τούτῳ καθειστήκει—i.e now when he was accused of ‘Medism.’ ὲπεί γε δή is more emphatie than ἐπειδή.

25. οὐδὲ τῶν ... πιστεύσαντες—an explanation of οὐδ᾽ ὥς.
