23. ἡτελευταίαχάρις—the service that Athens will render to Corinth by refusing the Corcyrean request. ‘This will be highly opportune, though involving a trifling sacrifice’ (Morris).
25. μεῖζονἔγκλημα—the complaint that we have against you about Megara. (If the first explan. above is right, this ἔγκλημα would be that Athens had violated the thirty years' truce.)
