18. τῇ μὲν προτέρᾳ — temporal, like μάχῃ τῇ πρώτῃ vii. 11. ἐν δὲ τῇ ὑστεραίᾳἐκκλησίᾳ) must mean in the assembly held on the following day, according to the meaning of such adjs. in -αῖος. Cobet read ὑστέρᾳ, in the subsequent assembly. We must assume that the assembly met on the next day when a debate was adjourned (and this seems to be the meaning of καὶ δίς). There is no evidence.

23. σφίσιν=τοῖς Κερκυραίοις. αὐτοῖς =τοῖς Ἀθηναίοις.

ἐκέλευον ... ἐλύοντ᾽ ἄν—the condition expressed from the point of view of Thuc. himself (Forbes).

25. ἐπιμαχίαν—a defensive (ξυμμαχία, an offensive and defensive) alliance.

26. τῇ ἀλλήλων—c. 15. 2.
