[3] 15. εἰδόσι—sc. ὑμῖν.

16. μακρηγορεῖν, ὧν — most edd. supply ἡμᾶς (=τοὺς ξυμμάχους). And τοὺς μέν is then explained as Aegina; but how can Aegina be included under the ξύμμαχοι of Sparta? See c. 67. 3 εἴ τις. It is on all grounds better to understand ὧν as for ἐπεὶ ἐκείνων (i.e. τῶν Ἑλλήνων from τὴν Ἑλλάδα) with Conradt who is followed by Steup. Thus τοὺς μέν naturally refers to the subject allies of Athens, against whom it was a constant complaint that she ‘enslaved the Greeks.’

18. ἡμετέροις ξ.—Potidaea and her allies in Chalcidice: since they had revolted from Athens, they are reckoned as allies of Corinth.

19. προπαρεσκευασμένους—the relative is now lost sight of.

πολεμήσονται—pass., ‘shall become involved in war.’
