52. 4. βουλόμενοι — for this ‘sense’ construction after νῆες cf. 110. 4.

[2] 5. τὰς μὲν ναῦς—poetical construction with αἴρω in this sense; elsewhere it is absol. or has ταῖς ναυσίν. Croiset compares αἴρειν στόλον in tragedy.

12. ἐπισκευὴν οὐκ οὖσαν—sc. ὁρῶντες, the two examples of τὰ ἄπορα being given in different form.

13. τοῦ ... πλοῦ=περὶ τοῦ πλοῦ, anticipating ὅπῃ κομισθήσονται: the gen. placed thus at the head of a sentence with a verb of speaking or thinking about is common in Plato; and the constn. comes down from epic. For trag. cf. Soph. OT 317, Trach. 169 τοῦ κασιγνήτου τί φῄς ; Plat. Rep. 576 D εὐδαιμονίας ὡσαύτως ἄλλως πως κρίνεις ;
