24. ἐσπλέοντι—dat. of the ‘person judging,’ frequent in Thuc. The direct accus. instead of ἐς after ἐσπλεῖν is poetical, and occurs nowhere else in prose.

12. Ἰόνιον—the Adriatic.

[2] 16. Κορίνθιος—when a city that was a colony founded a colony in turn, it was usual to choose a founder from the original mother-city.

τῶν ἀφ᾽ . depends on Φαλίος, of the family of the Heraclidae.

[3] 21. δύναμις—see crit. note. The gloss πόλις is, of course, due to πολυάνθρωπος. An obvious change would be δύναμις μ. καὶ <πόλις> πολυάνθρωπος, but δύναμις πολυάνθρωπος is surely a possible phrase, as δύναμις denotes military power: cf. 33. 2 αὕτη δύναμιςπάρεστιν αὐτεπάγγελτος.

23. ἀπὸ πολέμου ... ἐφθάρησανin consequence of a war with ... they became crippled.

[4] 24. τῆς δυνάμεως depends on τῆς πολλῆς, i.e. the idiom πολλὴ τῆς δ. is used.

25. τὰ δὲ τελευταῖα ... πολέμουin the period immediately preceding this war.

[5] 1. ἐπελθόντες—this conjecture seems required, since with ἀπελθόντες (‘the departed exiles’) we miss a circumstantial partic. to ἐλῄζοντο.

[6] 7. περιορᾶν φθειρομένους—in c. 35. 4 περιορῶ with infin. With infin. περιορῶ occurs only in Herod. and Thuc., and =ἐῶ: with partic. (pres. or aor. with different shade of meaning)=‘look on’ with indifference.
