1. οὐχ ὑπήκουον: this must refer to a refusal of the Thebans, before the seizure of Elatea, to join Philip in an expedition against the Amphissians, against whom he professed to be marching: see § 152.7, ὡς ἐπὶ τὴν Κιρραίαν.

2. συμμάχους: i.e. the Arcadians, Eleans, and Argives. See Isocr. V. 74, Ἀργεῖοι δὲ καὶ Μεσσήνιοι καὶ Μεγαλοπολῖται καὶ τῶν ἄλλων πολλοὶ συμπολεμεῖν (sc. ὑπάρχουσί σοι ἕτοιμοι), and Dem. IX. 27. See Hist. §§ 41, 42.

6. κοινὰ: cf. κοινὰς προφάσεις, §§ 147.4, 158.1-3.—τοῖς Ἀμφικτύοσι δόξαντα, Amphictyonic decrees, τοῖς Ἀμφ. ἔδοξεν. Cf. III. 14, τὸ ποιεῖν ἐθέλειν τά γε δόξαντα. The older Athenian decrees began with ἔδοξε τῇ βουλῇ καὶ τῷ δήμῳ.
