57. 15. ταῦτα δὲ κτλ.—the battle ... had only recently been fought when the A... ...

[2] 19. φανερῶς ἤδη—their hatred of Athens is of earlier origin. See p. 38 l. 22 note.

21. ἐπεπολέμωτο—c. 36. 1.

25. ἔς τε πέμπων ... καὶ ... προσεποιεῖτο—the construction passes from the partic. to the finite verb. This form of anacoluthon is by no means confined to Thuc.; but cf. e.g. ii. 47. 3 λεγόμενον μὲν ... οὐ μέντοι ... ἐμνημονεύετο γενέσθαι.

[4] 1. προσεποιεῖτοtried to ... .

[6] 8. ἔτυχον γάρ introduces what follows, as in c. 31. 2.

10. αὐτοῦ—Perdiccas.

11. δέκα—there would thus be eleven στρατηγοί, and five more belonging to the same year are mentioned in c. 61. As the number of στρατηγοί was regularly ten, Kruger altered δέκα to τεσσάρωνδ᾽. But instead of μετ᾽ ἄλλων τεσσάρων we expect πεμπτοῦ αὐτοῦ. Perhaps Thuc. wrote only μετ᾽ ἄλλων, and had no record of the number; cf. c. 51. 4.
