ἑκάστων, κ.τ.λ. ‘The Persian king does not rule the peoples of Asia by their consent [ἑκόντων, predicate], but by surrounding himself [ποιησάμενος, causal] with a power which overmatches those peoples taken singly’ [ἑκάστων]: if they unite, and are helped from Greece, they will prevail. — βουληθέντες=εἰ βουληθεῖμεν, Goodwin § 109.
