[2] 19. ἀπέχει—sc. Olynthus; ἀπεῖχε (see crit note) would be a common use of imperf. in giving geographical details; cf. e.g. 2.13 τοῦ ... τείχους στάδιοι ἦσαν κτλ.; many exx. from Anabasis is Kühner's n. on Anab. 1.4.9. Of course the pres. is also possible, and ἔστι favours it here. (The imperf. is equally used when the fact given implies the result of the writer's observation: so that it is not right to draw a distinction here.)

20. ἔστι—sc. the ground between the two cities.

22. ἤρθη—to summon the troops from Olynthus.

26. κατεσπάσθη—plup. in sense.

1. παρεγένοντο ἐν τῇ μάχῃ.
