οἱ ἐν τοῖς π.οἱ τὰ τῆς πόλεως πράττοντες.

ἀποκωλύειν—the MSS. give fut., but the infin. after δύναμαι and its equivalents is prolate.

Ἀθηναίοις μέν—the conditions are stated in the loose form frequently found in treaties, etc.: (1) two points in favour of the A. are connected; (2) some supply ἐξεῖναι to άποστέλλειν, but it is better to make the latter depend directly on ὥστε; (3) δῆσαι, ete. also depend on ὥστε.

ἐν ὅσῳ=μέχρι οὗ, cf. e. 52, 3. It is a similar constr. to that in Tityre, dum redeo. Classen saw a combination of (1) ἐν ὅσῳ ἂν ἀπῶσι and (2) ἕως ἂν πάλιν ἔλθωσι.

ὅμως—in spite of the guarantee; cf. c. 49, 1 n. (Vollgraff brackets as a dittography from βωμούς.) καθίζειν ἐπὶ βωμόν, άναστήσας (=ἀναστῆναι πείσας), and κατατίθεσθαι ἐς are technical in this connexion. With ἀναστήσας ὤστε μὴ ἀδικῆσαι cf. ἀναστήσαντες ἐφ᾽ μηδὲν κακὸν ποιήσουσιν I. 126.

μέχρι οὗ without ἄν, as in Herod. (μέχρι οὗ is not nsed in verse). M.T. § 620.

προσεκτήσατο—the common object, as usual, accommodated to the partic., πέμψας.
