2. ἐκ τοιούτων ἐλαττωμά- των, i.e. with such disadvantages at the outset.—συμμάχους...ἐποίησα: this refers to the grand league against Philip, formed early in 340 B.C. by Demosthenes and Callias of Chalcis. See Hist. § 51 (end). For the Euboeans see § 79 (above): for the Euboeans, Peloponnesians, and Acarnanians see Aesch. III. 95—97.

5. μύριοι καὶ πεντακισχίλιοι: this includes the Theban forces, which were added a year after the league was formed.

6. πολιτικῶν, citizen soldiers (of the various states).

7. συντέλειαν: this term was ap- plied to the contributions of the new league, rather than σύνταξις (§ 234.4): Aesch. (III. 97) calls them σύνταγμα.
