ἐπὶ μὲν ἐκείνων ‘in their time’ — i.e. when they were in the ascendant: cp. Philipp. § 95, δεκαρχίας τὰς ἐπὶ Λακεδαιμονίων, note, p. 325.

δὶς ἤδη καταλ By the Four Hundred in 411 B.C., and the Thirty in 404 B.C. Cp. Lysias or. XXXIV. § I, p. 52.

τὰς φυγάς, κ.τ.λ. ‘and that the exiles who were sent into banishment in the time of the tyrants [the Four Hundred], and in the time of the Thirty, were restored, not through the mercenary adventurers, but through those who hate such men’. — φυγάς...κατελθούσας=φυγάδας...κατελθόντας. — τῶν τυράννων would more naturally mean the Peisistratidae; but ἐν ὀλίγῳ χρόνῳ, with δίς, excludes that view.
