14. ἄξιοι—have a right.
16. ἄλλωςτεκαί—this clause must give a reason for the claim just made, and this can only be if διαφερόντων here= ‘the interests’ at stake, and not ‘differences’ between you and Athens. But διαφέροντας presently has the other sense.
20. ὑμῶν with διαφέροντας.
καὶὡς—καί is ‘nay’ or ‘in fact.’
