[4] 29. ἐπεστάλη—impersonal.

1. τοῖς Λακεδαιμονίοις—i.e. ταῖς ἀρχαῖς (c. 90. 5).

4. εἰ δέ τι κτλ—a claim to complete recognition as an equal. τι=‘in regard to any matter:’ ὡς πρὸς κτλ. lit. to go in future as to men who could discern both their own interests and the common interests of the Greeks. ἰέναι depends on εἶπεν in sense of ἐκέλευσεν: ὡς πρὸς δ. is placed early so as to make it emphatic, and the emphasis must be marked in translating. There is no reason for interfering with the text here: προδ (see crit. note) is only a slip for πρὸς δ.
