16. οἰκήσειςsettlements, the πόλεις of c. 5. 1.

17. (διὰ τὰς) ... ἐφόδουςtheir hazardous intercourse.

ξυνήθη κτλ = ξυνήθως ἐδιῃτῶντο.

19. ταῦτα ... ἔτι οὕτω νεμόμεναthe fact that in these parts of Greece men still live in this way. This predicative use of the partic. is less common in Gk. than in Lat. (see M. T. 829 b). It is most often found with prepositions, and especially in phrases indicating time, with μετά, ἐπί, ἁμά. With certain well-defined exceptions, it does not occur unless the noun and verb yield sense without the partic.; i.e. the partic, was felt to be separate from the noun.
