Deliberation of the Peloponnesian allies at Sparta on the question of war.

αὖθις...παρακαλέσαντες : with reference to c. 67. 3, 9; 87. 11.

ψῆφον ἐπαγαγεῖν: see on c. 87. 13.— 3. ξυμμαχίας: see on c. 118. 14.

ἐβούλοντο: i.e. what they regarded as their interest, as in c. 67.

οἱ πλείους: appos. to οἱ ἄλλοι, though only a portion of the latter is meant. Cf. c. 2. 24; 18. 2.

ἑκάστων: depends on δεηθέντες, κατὰ πόλεις giving the principle of distribution; the separate allied states.ὥστε: after δεηθέντες is pleonastic, but serves to emphasize the object to be attained. See App. on c. 28. 18. Cf. iii.75.4; vi.88.47; vii.86.14; viii.79.2. Kühn. 473, note 6.

δεδιότες: subord. to δεηθέντες as its motive. Cf. c. 31. 5; 67. 6; 75. 11.—μὴ προδιαφθαρῇ: see c. 65. § 3.

παρόντες...τότε : opp. to δεηθέντες . . . πρότερον, as they had before appealed to individual states, so now they came to the assembly to further their object. παρόντες = παραγενόμενοι. Cf. iii.3.19; 69. 11; iv.107.13; 124. 26; vii.1.11; viii.17.14. Ullrich, Kr. Beitr. III. 5 ff., proposes παριόντες, but the sense would rather require παρελθόντες; cf. c. 67. 16; 139. 23. In vi.15.1; viii.68.7, παριών stands in definite relation to an impf. —τελευταῖοι: so also c. 67. 16.— ἐπελθόντες: see on c. 72. 15.
