πρὸς τὸ ἄγγελμα—how near this use of πρὸς is to διὰ with accus. may be seen from c. 60.2 πρὸς τὴν παροῦσαν ἀπορίαν . . . ἐβουλεύσαντο ἐκλιπεῖν as compared with c. 29.1 διὰ τὴν παροῦσαν ἀπορίαν . . . οὐ βουλόμενοι δαπανᾶν.

οὐκ ἀπάτην—together, as in τὴν τῶν γεφυρῶν οὐ διάλυσιν of I. 137.

καὶ ὣς—i.e. even after waiting that night.

τὴν ἐπιοῦσαν ἡμέραν—insequentem diem.

ὡς ἐκ τῶν δυνατῶνas best they could.

ἀναλαβόντες—as though διενοήθησαν had preceded.

αὐτὰ ὅσαonly so much as.

εἰκὸς ἦν . . . ἰέναιit was natural for the A. to go, ἰέναι being present, as is usually the case with the paradigm of εἶμι except in Oratio Obliqua.

ὐποδοχὴν—of a hostile reception, as accipio in Cic. ad At. I. 18 hunc ego accepi in senatu ut soleo ‘I gave him a warm reception.’

ὥσπερ διενοήθησαν—see c. 60.2.

ὡς ἑκάστην—see on c. 65.2.

ποι ἐκπεπτωκυῖανhad been driven ashore anywhere.

ἐκόμιζον—the A. dead, whom Nicias had left as they fell, were afterwards buried by the Syr. on Plemmyrium, where their graves and bones have been recently found. (See Freeman Hist. Sic. III. p. 365.)
