τῇ δέ: attracted into the case appropriate in the next clause; cf. i. 24. 5 ad init.

ἔδεε: of the decrees of fate; cf. ii. 161. 3; similarly χρῆν, i. 8. 2; ii. 55. 2.


For the grant of cities cf. ii. 98 n.; Thuc. i. 138; Xen. Hell. iii. 1. 6.

στρατός. E. Meyer (iii. § 20) inclines to interpret this of a bodyguard. So the στρατίη of Masistes (ch. 113 ad fin.) can hardly have been more than a guard.
