οἱ ἐν τῇ Ναυπάκτῳ—for the order of the words cf. note on ch. 24, 1. The Athenians had a regular naval station at Naupactus. The Acarnanians had come to terms with the Ambrakiotes the year before (iii. 114).

ἐκπέμψαντες—a milder word than ἐκβαλόντες, probably implying the absence of a struggle: so v. 52, ἐξέπεμψαν, of an unsatisfactory governor: cf. Dem. Lept. 597, Θηβαίους υποσπόνδους ἀπεπέμψατε.

οἰκήτορες ἀπὸ πάντων—predicate in agreement with the subject, like ch. 14, 31, καὶ ἀπὸ πάντων ἤδη βεβοηθηκότες: some settlers came from every Acarnanian town. αὐτοί—‘by themselves’ as opposed to the Athenians.
