1. Ἀριστοφῶντα (see § 70.5), a leading statesman of the earlier period and a strong friend of Thebes. Aesch. says of him (III. 139), πλεῖστον χρόνον τὴν τοῦ βοιωτιάζειν ὑπομείνας αἰτίαν.—Εὔβουλον (cf. § 70.5): see Grote XI. 387.

2. βουλομένους and ὁμογνωμο- νοῦντας (4) are imperfect, past to εἰδὼς and διετέλουν: but ἀντιλέγοντας (3), though they opposed one another, is present to ὁμογν., to which it is subordinate.—ταύτην τὴν φιλίαν: the friendship for Thebes during the oppressive Spartan supremacy, which appeared in the aid privately sent by Athens to Thebes when she expelled the Spartan garrison from the Cadmea in 379 B.C. This friendship was broken after Leuctra in 371. See § 98.4 and note.

5. παρηκολούθεις is more than you were one of their followers; it means you followed them round or hung on to them in a servile way. Eubulus was one of the συνήγοροι who supported Aesch. at his trial for παραπρεσβεία (Aesch. II. 184). The anonymous Life of Aeschines makes him a clerk to both Eubulus and Aristophon.

6. ...ἐπιτιμᾷς: the charge of favouring Thebes in the terms of the alliance in 339—338 B.C. (Aesch. 141—143).
