5. οἰκουμένη— this and the following participles are imperfect.

6. οὖσαι—sc. φαίνονται.

τὰ πρότερα—the adverbial accus., in plur, is common in Thuc., but is seldom found in other prose anthors.

8. βιαζόμενοι—the pres. and imperf. of this verb in a passive sense are far less common in other prose authors than in Thuc.

ὑπό τινων αἰεὶ πλειόνων—what is noticeable here is that αἰεί (‘from time to time’) occurs with τινων, and not with τῶν, which—as the older critics note—is the usual form of expression.
