τοίνυν: forms a vigorous and almost impatient beginning: well, then, if you, etc. τοίνυν occurs in Thuc. only in direct address. Cf. c. 89. 1; 105. 1; iii. 45. 14; viii. 53. 20.—ὑπονοίας λογιούμενοι: used somewhat ironically: to consider hidden thoughts, and hence to argue from suspicious fancies about the future.

ἄλλο τι : cf. iii. 85. 13, ὅπως ἀπόγνοια τοῦ ἄλλο τι κρατεῖν τῆς γῆς, where the Schol. supplies πρᾶξαι after ἄλλο τι. A similar expression is τί ἄλλο in iii. 39. 10 and 58. 24.—ὧν ὁρᾶτε: this is still dependent upon ἐκ. Cf. c. 42. 2. Here, however, the rel. is attracted into the case of an omitted indef. antec.

ἐπὶ τοῦτο: sc. ξυνήκετε.
