πλέω μὴ ἀναπλήσῃ, ‘let not the land of Boeotia suffer any more for us’. For the expression implying evil cf. v. 4. 2, vi. 12. 3; for such negative exhortations cf. Goodwin, § 259; vii. 10 η μή νυν οὕτω γένηται.

ἐκ τοῦ κοινοῦ, ‘from the public treasury’ (vii. 144. 1), but σὺν τῷ κοινῷ, ‘with the assent of the whole state’ (v. 109. 3; viii. 135. 2 n.). H. insists that the whole Theban state Medized eagerly (cf. introduction, p. 40), but apparently there were two parties there (cf. Thuc. iii. 62 cited above), Plut. Arist. 18προθυμότατα τῶν πρώτων καὶ δυνατωτάτων τότε παρ᾽ αὐτοῖς μηδιζόντων καὶ τὸ πλῆθος οὐ κατὰ γνώμην ἀλλ᾽ ὀλιγαρχούμενον ἀγόντων”. Pausanias (ix. 6. 2), too, acquits the commons of Medism. καί: the penalty must be paid by the state since the offence, Medism, was also general.
