ἀλλὰτοῖςχ.—ἀλλά in rhetorical altercation, as often (e.g. 6.38. 5), ‘well then.’
18. ἐνκοινῷ—the treasury. The want of money at Sparta previous to Lysander's conquests is well-known. After the Pel. War there was a great change; but the money then acquired found its way into private hands, not into the treasury.
19. ἑτοίμως—easily. (The Spartans had not yet become conspicuous for covetousness, as after the war.)
20. φέρομεν—as an εἰσφορά.
