[3] 12. τετύχηκε δὲ κτλ —lit. it has turned out that the same conduct not only involves us in inconsistency in our dealing with you, as regards the request we make, but is also disadvantageous (to us) in respect of our own position at the present time; i.e. beeause we have hitherto abstained from entering your alliance it is inconsistent to be seeking it now, and for the same reason we are now in danger. To ἄλογον and ἀξύμφορον supply ὄν, which is often omitted with τυγχάνω, φαίνομαι, διατελῶ, and occasionally with other verbs; cf. c. 34 end.
