24. προσελθόντες—to the ephors; contrast παρελθόντες below.
26. εἴτιμὴἀποκωλύοι—this is the reading of the Laurentian, and its evidence in such a point outweighs all the other MSS. The confusion between the forms of indic. subj. and opt. is continually met with in MSS.; this passage does not stand on the same footing as 6.21 where εἰξυστῶσιν is the only reading.
