15. τοῖςαὐτοῖς—i.e. θανάτῳ.
16. ἔτυχεγὰρὠστρακισμένος—when this had happened is unknown; 471 B.C. is generally favoured in spite of the statement in Ath. Pol. that Them. was at Athens in 462 B.C.: the year depends upon other events such as the reduction of Naxos (see c. 137. 2）—of which the date is uncertain. For a discussion see Sandys on Ath. Pol. c. 25.
20. ἄγειν—sc. to Athens.
