[4] 27. προκινδυνεῦσαι τῷ β. — ‘stand forward,’ ‘bear the brunt of battle against,’ as a πρόμαχος. Demosth. brings in προκινδυνεύω in the famous oath in de Cor. 208 μὰ τοὺς Μαραθῶνι προκινδυνεύσαντας κτλ.: he probably had this passage in mind.

3. ἀδυνάτων ἂν ὄντων — masc.=οἳ (sc. οἱ Πελοποννήσιοι from τὴν Π.) ἀδύνατοι ἂν ἦσαν (Mr. Forbes takes ἀδυνάτων ὄντων as neut., like πλωιμωτέρων ὄντων c. 7, εἰσαγγελθέντων c. 116— where see notes—as if we had ἀδύνατον ἃν ὄν. This will not do).
