23. εὐεργέτης—by some official act, probably in some dispute with another state, according to Plutarch with Corinth. In all such decrees of honour conferred on a ξένος a clause giving him ἀσυλία was contained; and on this clause Them. relied.

23. αὐτῶν—the Corcyreans; for this idiom cf. c. 34. 4.

26. ἀπεχθέσθαι ἐχθρὸς (leg. ἐχθροὺςγενέσθαι (Schol.). The MSS. ἀπέχθεσθαι assumes a pres. form ἀπέχθομαι: similarly in vii. 75 ABEFM give αίσθεσθαι as from αίσθομαι, but CG have αἰσθέσθαι: in Eur. Phoen. 300 the MSS. have θίγειν as from θίγωθιγγάνω). But that these only oceur in forms that may be aorists is very suspicious: with other such double forms—e.g. αὔξω beside αὐξάνω—the indic. forms occur.

28. κατὰ πύστιν χ.in accordance with inquiry as to the road he took. The opt. is iterative.
