τέλος γε μέντοι, at last, however; “γε” emphasising the word before it: O. T. 442 n. ἐνίκησεν, impers., as Thuc. 2.54 “ἐνίκησε δὲ...λοιμὸν εἰρῆσθαι” (the opinion prevailed that...): Her. 6.101 “ἐνίκα μὴ” “ἐκλιπεῖν τὴν πόλιν”. That “μολεῖν” should not be regarded as the subject to “ἐνίκησε”, is shown by such an example as Her. 8.9 “ἐνίκα τὴν ἡμέρην ἐκείνην αὐτοῦ μείναντάς τε καὶ αὐλισθέντας μετέπειτα νύκτα μέσην παρέντας πορεύεσθαι”, where the length of the interval excludes such a view. The personal constr. occurs below, 274; cp. Thuc. 2.12 “ἦν...Περικλέους γνώμη...νενικηκυῖα”.
