Ἐλευθέρους—the slaves had been sold.

Τῷ πολέμῳ—c. 47, 1.

ἐτελεύτα—the anaphora is probably unintentional, this being a formula, which, though to us it may become tedious, is quite in accordance with the Greek method of ending quietly. Cf. the closing lines of any Greek play, and the finish of any Greek speech except the de Corona. (I cannot in the least agree with what Dr. Rutherford says on this formula.)
