previous next

τῶν = τουτέων ὧν: the antecedent depends on ὅκου. The fleet might meet with defeat, in which case it was vital that the shore behind should be in the hands of friends; cf. § 2, ch. 76. 2; Thuc. vii. 36.

συνεξέπιπτον, ‘were agreed in’ (cf. i. 206. 3), imperfect because the final decision (ch. 63) was to the opposite effect; cf. ch. 123. 2 of voting which led to no result.

For the anacoluthon ἐπιλέγοντες after λεγόντων cf. iii. 16. 3, &c. The construction is κατὰ σύνεσιν, since in sense the previous clause = οἱ δὲ λέγοντες πλεῖστοι ἔγνωσαν.

ἐξοίσονται: middle in passive sense as in ch. 76. 2; cf. πολιορκήσονται, sup. v. 34. 1; viii. 70. 2.
