15. ἐν τῇ πόλει
—the celebrated admiral.
—Ionic gen. of Ἄφυτις
: cf.e.g. Τήρης Τήρεω 2.29
23. ἀπετείχισε τὸ ... τεῖχος
—the bracketing of τεῖχος
makes the sense ‘walled it off on the south side’; cf. τὸ δ᾽ ἐς τὴν Παλλήνην
(where, however, τεῖχος may
be supplied). But ‘walled off the south wall
’ may very well be the meaning as above in l. 8. Classen retains τεῖχος
here and renders ‘built across the south line of circum vallation.’ This is scarcely the meaning of ἀποτειχίζω
26. ναυσὶν ἄμα ἐφ
.—with a fleet blockading it.
1. ξυνεβούλευε ... ἤθελε ... ἔπειθε
— like ἐκέλευε
: such words being often used in imperf. when a speaker is giving advice.
