νῆας, and so on. 23. ὡς ... τοῦτο—Shilleto refers to Plat. Theaet. 193 D ὃ ἐν τοῖς πρόσθεν οὕτως ἔλεγον for a similar redundancy. τῳ—in any one's opinion. To τεκμηριῶσαι supply τοῦτο: it is only with ref. to the details that Thuc. suggests a doubt. 24. ἐν τοῦ σκήπτρου τῇ παραδόσει—in the passage where the sceptre of Agamemnon is said to have been transmitted through his family; Il. 2.101-108. For this method of referring to passages in times before the division into books, etc. was made cf. c. 10. 4; Mark 12.26 ἐπὶ τῆς βάτου; Ep. Rom. 11.2. 26. οὐκ ἂν ... ἐκράτει—he would not have been ruler (as he was). Classen's version, ‘he would not be (in the Iliad) ruler,’ is less likely. 27. οὐχ ἂν εἶεν— MT 238. 2. καὶ ταύτῃ τῇ στρατείᾳ—i.e. this expedition itself was not on a very large scale. All the more insignificant must have been those undertakings that preceded it.
