is governed both by προχωρησάντων

There is an anacoluthon
, for strictly ὲπεγένετο

, and ἐξουσία
does not seem to occur before Aristotle in this sense. Stahl thinks βασιλεία
is a gloss on ἐξουσία
. But it is possible that ἐξουσία
itself is a gloss. The matter is complicated by the fact that both βασιλεία

, power to do a thing,
a ‘power’; cf. βασιλεία τὸ ἀξίωμα καὶ τὸ ἔθνος βασιλευόμενον
, Suidas). Of course here the sense is concrete.

—a part. of εἰμί
is constantly omitted after ὅσος
ἐντὸς Ἅλυος ποταμοῦ —ἐντός
from the Greek point of view. When ποταμός
is added the art.
is regularly inserted before the name of a river in Attic. But Herod. does not use the art., and Thuc. omits it in six passages. The only other known exx. are Isocr. 7, 80 (also ἐντὸς Ἅλυος π.
) and Xen. Anab. 4.7.18.

—according to Herod. 1. 169, when the Ioman cities of the mainland submitted to Harpagus, the islands also gave in; but no doubt the submission of the islands was incomplete. Otherwise the rise of Polycrates would be unaccountable. Thuc. alludes to their reduction after Lade, 494 B.C.
