αὐτῶν: sc. τῶν Κερκυραίων. Cf. c. 24. 9; 34. 5.—εὐεργέτης: either because he took their part in a strife with Corinth (Plut. Them. 24), or (Schol.) excused their absence in the Persian war (Hdt. vii. 168). It is probable (Hermes, 14, 152) that a right of asylum had been decreed to him as εὐεργέτης.— 3. ἔχειν αὐτόν : to keep him with them; the object of fear in inf. Cf. iv.110.13; v.105.12. GMT. 46, N. 8.— ὥστε...ἀπέχθεσθαι : the result of ἔχειν; by which they would become odious. ἀπέχθεσθαι here and ἀπήχθεσθε, ii.63.6, are plainly aor. in sense; but by the evidence of Mss. the inf. (like καθέζεσθαι) seems to have kept the accent of the pres. Buttmann, Gram.II.^{2}p.141(1), 187; Kühn.I.p.827.

τῶν προστεταγμένων: those appointed thereto. Cf. v.75.23; vi.31.31; vii.70.21; viii.8.13.

χωροίη: depends on κατὰ πύστιν, opt. of repetition: they were to pursue him in whatever direction their inquiries told them he had gone.—κατά τι ἄπορον: what this difficulty was is left unmentioned; a similar reticence in c. 72. 3. The conjecture τὸ ἄπορον is unnecessary.

καταλῦσαι: aor., ‘to take up one's quarters’ παρά τινα: καταλύειν, ‘to dwell as a guest’ παρά τινι. Cf. Plat. Prot. 311 a; Dem. XVIII. 82.

τὸν παῖδα σφῶν: she would say, τὸν παῖδα ἡμῶν. Cf. v.71.14, δείσας Ἆγις μὴ σφῶν κυκλωθῇ τὸ εὐώνυμον.

καθέζεσθαι : so we must write even against the Mss. for καθίζεσθαι. For Thuc., with Attic writers generally, uses only active forms of καθίζω. Cf. c. 126. 32; iii.28.13; 75. 15, 21. On the other hand, the mid. forms καθεζόμην, καθεζόμενος, καθέζωμαι (c. 24. 20; vi.49.16; vii.67.13; 77. 22), and the inf. (see on 3), are always true aors, in sense.

ὅς ἐστι: qui sit; the rule is to say οἶδά σε ὃς εἶ, and οὐκ οἶδά δε ὁστις εἶ, quis sis. But ὅστις is not seldom found after an affirmative (cf. c. 137. 11; Kühn. 562, 4), and ὅς sometimes after a negative. Kr. Dial. 61, 6, 1.

οὐκ ἀξιοῖ: like οὐ φάναι, οὐκ ἐᾶν, with an appeal to the sense of honour:=οὐκ ἄξιον εἶναί φησι. Cf. c. 133. 13, and see on c. 102. 17.— εἴ τι ἄρα: ἄρα implies the naturalness of the inference that former injury justifies revenge. See on c. 121. 22.

δεομένῳ: the circumstances are not known. The Schol. merely conjectures περὶ ξυμμαχίας δεήσεως.

καὶ γὰρ ἂν...τιμωρεῖσθαι : gives the reason of what precedes, particularly of οὐκ ἀξιοῖ. All the better Mss. read ἀσθενεστέρου; “he could in his present state be harmed by a far weaker man than Admetus; but a generous man will avenge himself only on persons who are on a par with him.” See App.

τοὺς ὁμοίους: wrongly suspected by Cobet, is the object, and ἀπὸ τοῦ ἴσου denotes the position of the subject. See on c. 77. 8.

χρείας τινός: in the matter of some petition. Kr. Spr. 47, 21, 1; Kühn. 419 g. A similar gen. with ἐναντιοῦσθαι, Xen. An. vii.6.5.—ἐς τὸ σῶμα σῴζεσθαι: the art. belongs to the inf. σῶμα=life, as c. 85. 4, and requires no expressed art. Kr. Spr. 50, 2, 13.

εἰπών: inserted as δείξας, c. 87. 8.—ἐφ᾽ : see on c. 134. 5.— ἄν: repeated after the parenthesis. Cf. c. 36. 15; 76. 19.
