1 According to Thucydides （Thuc. 1.96） the Hellenotamiae were Athenian officials from the very start. But the evidence of the Quota-lists rather indicates that the office first became purely Athenian in 454, after the transference of the treasury of the League from Delos to Athens.
2 Apparently a reference to the famous trick of Themistocles when rebuilding the walls of Athens in the winter of 479 （Thuc. 1.90）. Thucydides, however, does not suggest that there was any danger of war from Sparta in consequence.
