27. 18. αὐτοῖς—see on c. 13. 3.

22. ἐπὶ τῇ ... ἰέναι—epexegesis of ἀποικίαν, and governed by ἐκήρυσσον. For the dat. fem. in adverbial phrase cf. c. 15. 2. The new colonies were to have equal rights with the old.

24. ἐθέλει ... βούλεται—if ἐθέλοι is right, the two moods are combined in O.O.; ἐθέλοι represents ἐθέλει of recta, and there is no change of meaning. It should be noticed that the Laurentian gives ἐθέλει: for the change of indic. after εἰ to optat. is rare, but occurs occasionally, as in Lys. vii. 34 προσῆλθον λέγων ὅτι ... ἕτοιμός εἰμι, εἴ τινα βούλοιτο (=βούλει), παραδοῦναι. In Thuc. 8.89. 3 εἰ μὴ ἤκοιεν represents εἰ μὴ ἥκουσι.

26. Κορινθίας—the Cor. drachma was about two-thirds of the value of the Attic.

μένειν—oblique for μενέτω.

[2] 4. Κεφαλλήνων — partitive; there were four πόλεις in Cephallenia, of which Pale was one.

9. κενάς—sc. ἀνδρῶν.
