μετ᾽ Ἀρριβαίου γεγένηνται—so Xen. Hell. iv. 8. 16, μετὰ Λακεδαιμονίων γενέσθαι: cf. ch. 113, 4, μετὰ τῶν...ἦσαν ώστε refers to the whole following sentence, and is grammatically connected with ἐχώρουν, line 12.

κυρωθὲν δ᾽ οὐδέν—a noticeable instance of the acc. absolute personally constructed (=οὐδενὸς κυρωθέντος) without ὡς: see Madvig § 182, R. 2: Goodwin § 110, 2: cf. Hdt. ii. 66, ταῦτα δὲ γιγνόμενα, πένθεα μεγάλα τοὺς Αἰγυπτἰους καταλαμβάνει: Ar. Plut. 277, λαχὸν τὸ γράμμα: Plat. Phaedr. 265 D ἔστιν, ὁρισθέν. Here possibly the construction is assimilated to the preceding δοκοῦν, which itself is very rare, though analogous to ἐξόν, προσῆκον, etc.

ἐκ τῆς διαφορᾶς—‘in consequence of the quarrel’.

ὅπερ φιλεῖ...ἐκπλήγνυσθαι—instead of ποιεῖν, which might be expected, as in ii. 65, ὅπερ φιλεῖ ὅμιλος ποιεῖν, an infinitive is added explanatory of ὅπερ: so vi. 33, ὅπερ καὶ Ἀθηναῖοι...ηὐξήθησαν: cf. Dem. Androt. 593, ὅπερ Εὐκτήμων...ὄεται δεῖν. The sense in these cases is given by rendering ὅπερ ‘just as’. In vii. 80, in a description of a similar panic, we have οἶον φιλεῖ...φόβοι ἐγγίγνεσθαι. ἀσαφῶς—‘without visible cause’. ἐκπλήγνυσθαι is an exceptional form for ἐκπλησσεσθαι.

ὄσον οὔπω—so vi. 34: viii. 96, ὅσον οὐκ ἤδη ἐνόμιζον αὐτοὺς παρεῖναι.

ἐκδρόμους—predicate, ‘to sally out’: so Xen. Hel. iv. 5. 16: see ch. 127, 6, ἐκδρομαί: ch. 34, 3, ὀξέως ἐπεκθεῖν.

τελευταῖος—connected with ὑποχωρῶν, as πρώτοις is with προσκεισομένοις: cf. ch. 38, 17. ὡς διὰ ταχέων—ch. 96, 4.
