[2] 10. τοῦ Ἑλληνικοῦabout the Greeks, but in sense this is object of δουλώσειν.

12. πεῖραν διδούς—so πεῖραν λαμβάνω.

13. ἦν γὰρ ... δηλώσας καὶ ... ἄξιος—the aor. partic. with ἧν is here joined to an adj. with ἦν: the consin. is nunsual, and some edd. place βεβαιότατα ... δηλώσας between commas, taking καί as emphasising διαφερόντως τι. Transl. ‘Them. was in fact one who showed most convincingly natural powers, and he was beyond all others worthy of the very highest admiration in this respect.’ ἐς αὐτό refers to φύσεως ἰσχύν: διαφερόντως τι belongs to θαυμάσαι: for μᾶλλον ἑτέρου cf. c. 84. 2 ἧσσον ἑτέρων.
