4. τὰ πᾶσι δοκοῦντα= πᾶσιν ἐδόκει, with reference to votes of the people: cf. 274.5.

5. ἴδιον personal, e.g. the danger of a γραφὴ παρανόμων: cf. §§ 235.11, 249.

6. οὐ...ἐχρῶντο: sc. εἰ ἕτερ᾽ εἶπες βελτίω.

7. εἰς ταῦτα, in support of my measures.

8. ὅπερ δ᾽ ἂν: sc. ποιήσειεν or ἐποίησεν. See § 291.4.

9. τῇ πόλει: for the order see § 176.11.—πεποιηκὼς...ἐξήτασαι, you are shown to have done after the events: cf. Hdt. I. 170, ἐπὶ διεφθαρμένοισι Ἴωσι, and § 284.10.

10. Ἀρίστρατος, Ἀριστόλεως: these men and the condition of Naxos and Thasos at this time are known only from this passage.
