φίλους νομίζοντας=εἰ φίλους νομίζετε (ἡμᾶς).
τὰ δ᾽ ἐν τῇ εἰρήνῃ—adverbial. The art. covers πρός.
καὶ γάρ—(1) this could be taken together,=etenim, or (2) a correlative for καί could be sought in what follows, or (3) καί could be supposed to emphasize the concessive force of ἠπειρῶται ὄντες: most probably (1) is right, though some deny this use for Thuc. μάχῃ—temporal, without ἐν; this dat. is used several times by Thuc. The Plataeans were always proud of the fact that the battle had been fought on their soil.
καὶ ὑμῖν . . ἰδίᾳ—as distinct from their services to the common cause. ὅτεπερ δή—‘at the very time when,’ in 464 B.C. τῶν . . ἀποστάντων depends on φόβος. For the position of the attrib. partic., not rare in Thuc. when other qualifying words are added, cf. II. 18 ἡ ἐν Ἰσθμῷ ἐπιμόνη γενομἐνη, c. 67, 3.
