τέλος γε μέντοι, at last, however; “γε” emphasising the word before it: O. T. 442 n.

ἐνίκησεν, impers., as Thuc. 2.54ἐνίκησε δὲ...λοιμὸν εἰρῆσθαι” (the opinion prevailed that...): Her. 6.101ἐνίκα μὴ

ἐκλιπεῖν τὴν πόλιν”. That “μολεῖν” should not be regarded as the subject to “ἐνίκησε”, is shown by such an example as Her. 8.9ἐνίκα 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. 2.12ἦν...Περικλέους γνώμη...νενικηκυῖα”.
