97. 14. βουλευόντων—co-ordinate with αὐτονόμων. ἀπό expresses the method.

τοσάδε ἐπῆλθον—the series of enterprises that are about to be noticed (c. 98-118); τοσάδε διεπράξαντο ὅσα ... ἐρεῖ Schol.

15. διαχειρίσει πραγμάτωνby the management (manipulation) of political affairs.

16. μεταξὺ τοῦδε τοῦ πολέμου καὶ τοῦ Μ.—between the Persian and Peloponnesian wars. Greek often proceeds in this manner from the nearer to the more remote.

—the antecedent is τοσάδε. ἐγένετο stands as the passive of ποιῶ.

20. τοὺς αἰεὶ προστυγχάνοντας ἐν ἑκάστῳwho in the several incidents came in contact with them as enemies (‘took part with the allies’ as some understand προστυγ. does not seem to be supported by the usage of the word; it occurs only here in Thuc.).

[2] 21. αὐτά—i.e. ἐγένετο κτλ.

23. χωρίονperiod.

26. Ἑλλάνικος—this is the only instance in which Thuc. names another historian. H. of Mitylene was contemporary with Pericles, and in his Ἀτθίς (here called Ἀττικὴ ξυγγραφή) he included a sketch of historical events, and is said to have carried his work down at least to 406 B.C.

27. βραχέως τε καὶ τοῖς χρόνοις οὐκ .—Hellanicus must have been very scanty and inexact in the dates for this period, since this description would apply in a considerable degree to the better account that Thuc. proceeds to give. For the probable dates of the events to be noticed see Introd. p. xxix.

29. ἔχει—sc. ταῦτα.
