πλήρωμα, used in other authors of a single ship, means ‘crew’, but of a squadron (here and ch. 45) ‘total’, for the Corinthians forty, and for the Megarians twenty as at Artemisium.

Here, as in other lists of peoples forming a host, the author appends ethnographic remarks (vii. 61 f., viii. 73; cf. Thuc. vii. 57 f.). On the Dorians and on Dryopis cf. i. 56 n.
