Speech of Euphemus, Athenian ambassador (82-87)

After Hermocrates, the Athenian ambassador Euphemus comes forward.

εἶπεν: aor., as always in Thuc. in referring back to a completed speech. See on 2. 71. 6.— δ᾽ Εὔφημος: already mentioned 75. 20, hence the art. Nothing further is known of his personality. In the following speech the idea of the interest of his own state is dominant.
