27. κρατῦναι κτλ.—see cc. 90 and 107.

28. ἐς τόδε=μέχρι τοῦδε.

1. ἀποστεροῦντες — a good ex. of the proper meaning, ‘withhold’ what belongs to another.

τοὺς ὑπ᾽ ἐκείνων δ.—the subject allies of Athens; see c. 68. 3. Sparta in the Pel. War claimed to be the ‘liberator of Greece.’ She had gained the reputation by her opposition to the τύραννοι.

2. τοὺς ὑμετέρους - the plain meaning is that A. has begun to act aggressively towards Megara and Corinth. (Perhaps ἡμετέρους used loosely as in c. 68. 3 is right here—see crit. note —or ὑμετὲρους should be read there.)

5. αὐτὸ δρᾷ—c. 5. 2.

τὴν ἀξίωσιν ... φέρεταιenjoys a reputation for generosity —lit. that, i.e. her, reputation ..., gained by such actions.
