2. ἔταξαν—cf. Ath. Pol. c. 23 τοὺς φόρους οὗτος (Aristides) ἦν τάξας ταῖς πόλεσιν τοὑς πρώτους ἔτει τρίτῳ μετὰ τὴν ἐν Σαλαμῖνι ναυμαχίαν—in 478-77. Trans. ‘assessed the contributions both of the states that were to provide money and of those,’ etc.—not ‘fixed which of the states,’ which overlooks the technical use of τάσσειν, rate.

5. ὧν=ἐκείνων , gen. of cause.

6. Ἑλληνοταμίαι ... ἀρχή ἀρχή is pred., ‘as an office,’ and the verb is attracted into its number. Only Athenians could hold the office. They were ten in number, and were elected annually in the Eeclesia, one from each tribe See Sandys' note on Ath. Pol. c. 30.2.
