2. καὶ τὸ σῶσαι τὴν νῆσον, even saving the island, i.e. this by itself, opposed to πολλῷ δ᾽ ... κάλλιον, sc. ἐποιήσατε. 5. μηδὲν......ὑπολογισάμενοι: μη- δὲν shows that the participial clause is closely connected with τὸ ἀποδοῦναι, not with ἐποιήσατε (understood). G. 1611. The meaning is without taking into account, rather than not taking into account. 6. ἐν οἷος ἐπιστεύθητε (for ἐν ἐκεί- νοις ἅ), representing the active πιστεύειν ταῦτα ὑμῖν, as ὧν ἠδίκησθε represents ἀδικεῖν ταῦτα ὑμᾶς. 7. ἐξόδους πεζὰς, land expeditions (after ναυμαχίας); στρατείας, campaigns. 9, 10. τῆς...σωτηρίας, rare geni- tive of purpose or motive, generally found with ἕνεκα, which is added here in most MSS. So XIX. 76, πᾶσ᾽ ἀπάτη καὶ τέχνη συνεσκευάσθη τοῦ περὶ Φωκέας ὀλέθρου, with similar variety of reading. (See G. 1127.) The infinitive with τοῦ is common in this construction, especially in Thucydides (M.T. 798): an example occurs in § 107.2, τοῦ μὴ ποιεῖν.
