67. παρεκάλουν — ‘invited,’ not by formal summons, which belonged to Sparta.

6. κατεβόων — with gen. ‘loudly accuse’; with accus., ‘shout down.’

7. σπονδάς—c. 53. 2.

[2] 9. φανερῶς—they were dependent allies of Athens.

10. κρύφα—sc. πρεσβευόμενοι.

12. κατὰ τὰς σπονδάς—the thirty years' truce; nothing is known of this particular clause in it.

[3] 13. προσπαρακαλέσαντες—thus supporting the Corinthian invitation. Steup renders ‘summoned before the assembly,’ holding that the embassies had already arrived in Sparta as the result of the Cor. invitation. This is impossible, unless we alter the text to προσκαλέσαντες: see c. 87. 4.

τῶν ξυμμάχων τε—partitive; edd. generally omit τε and make τῶν ξυμμάχων depend on εἴ τιςκαί=‘also’). If τε is sound, then εἴ τις must mean any one else in the position of Aegina: no other state outside the Pel. alliance seems to have sent; see c. 69. 1; 87. 4.

14. ἄλλο—besides those wrongs alleged by Corinth and Aegina. Some accept Reiske's ἄλλος with or without the τε. The invitation is to all who hold that in their case Athens had in any particular broken the thirty years' truce.

15. ποιήσαντεςcalled.

[4] 20. εἴργεσθαι—see c. 139.

[5] 24. ἐπεῖπονadded to what the others had said.
