119. 8. αὖθις with παρακαλέσαντες only; this is the cougress referred to in c. 87. 4. The earlier meeting implied is that of c. 67. 3.

18. παρόντες δὲ καὶ τότε—as they had already expressed their views to the allies as well as to Sparta, their presence at this second meeting is specially mentioned. (There is no sufficient ground for rejecting παρόντες. Steup conjectures παροξύνοντες.)

19. τελευταῖοι ἐπελθόντες—cf. c. 1.67.5.

21. οὐκ ... ἔτι—the charges (1) that the Lac. were neglecting their allies in not deciding to fight Athens, and (2) that they had not brought the allies together to vote on a clear issue, viz. on the question of war, had been brought by the Corinthians in the earlier assembly (c. 68).
