[4] 13. ναῦς πληροῦντες=ναῦς ἃς πληροῦσιν. Several edd. accept the conjecture πληροῦν, which is very probable. In Plat. Gorg. p. 494 C πληρούντα is probably a corruption of πληροῦν. Apart from the awkward constn. here there seems to be no point in πληροῦντες.

15. ἀπόντες—the three particc. are causal, and the full meaning is ‘since to do that (ναῦς ... ἐκπέμπειν) involves to them (1) absence from their lands’—(cf. the opposite ἐπὶ τῶν ἰδίων εἶναι Ath. Pol. c. 15), (2) paying the expenses out of their own money instead of getting it from the state, and (3) being chased off the seas by the Athenians.
