[3] 2. τούτου—sc. τοῦ ὑφ᾽ ὑμῶν ὠφελεῖσθαι. οὐχ ἧσσον ... = ... μᾶλλον .

ὑμεῖς μὲν γάρ—the ref. is to the tardy dispatch of the Spartan army under Pausanias to Boeotia in 479 B.C.

3. ἀπό τε οἰκουμένωνfrom your cities that were undisturbed) (ἀπὸ τῆς οὐκ οὔσης ἔτιπόλεως): ἐπὶ τῷ τὸ λοιπὸν ν., ‘with the object of occupying them in the future’) (ὑπὲρ τῆς ... οὔσης, which there was but little hope of recovering. (Some following the Schol. see in πόλις a reference to the Athenian navy; this is only artificial and does not give a clear antithesis to ἐπὶ τῷ νέμεσθαι.)

9. τὸ μέρος—cf. c. 127. 2, like τὸ σὸν μέρος, τοὐμὸν μέρος in tragedy. ‘Did our part in rescuing you as well as ourselves.’ The emphasis is on ὑμᾶς, and there is a contrast with ὑπὲρ ὑμῶν καὶ οὐχ ἡμῶν τὸ πλέον of l. 5.
