13. διὰ φιλίαν αὐτοῦ αὐτοῦ objective: the reason of this favour was, no doubt, that Them. was regarded at Sparta as a protector from the Persians: they owed him gratitude for the Athenian fleet; cf. c. 74. 1.

τῶν δὲ ἄλλων κτλ.—Classen makes ἀφικνουμένων substantival; and renders καὶ σαφῶς quite positively (ἐπεὶ οἱ ἄλλοι ἀφικνούμενοι, visitorsarrivals, as they say—καὶ σαφῶς κατηγόρουν). The contrast to this subject will then be σφῶν αὐτῶν ἄνδρας below. Others render ‘(all) the other (visitors) arriving and announcing.’ In either case there is probably an allusion to τῶν ξυμμάχων ἐξοτρυνόντων c. 90. 1 in τῶν δὲ ἄλλων: these ‘others’ were persons afraid of Athens.

15. τειχίζεται—sc. τὸ τεῖχος.
