[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.
