τὸ ἐχυρόν: stands in the relation of pred. to τὸ εὔνουν after φαίνεται, and the art. is added to emphasize the subst. use of ἐχυρόν (cf. ii. 43. 22 f.): “the thing which inspires confidence is not the good will,” etc.; the positive side is then expressed by the cond. sent. ἀλλ̓ ἤν τις προύχῃ.— 5. καὶ μετὰ ξυμμάχων πολλῶν: a similar idea is expressed in ii. 39. § 2.— 6. οὐκ εἰκὸς αὐτοὺς περαιωθῆναι: εἰκός regularly takes the inf. aor. (never the fut.) where the probability of the occurrence of a fut. action is to be expressed. See on i. 81. 13.
