τετιμωρημένος ἑαυτόν Cp. De Caed. Her. § 21, τὸν πλοῦν πεποιημένος. So Thuc. III. 67, τετιμωρημένοι, ‘having taken vengeance’: but in Thuc. VII. 77 it is passive, ἀποχρώντως ἤδη τετιμωρήμεθα, ‘we have been punished’: and so VI. 60, ἐτετιμώρηντο. So e.g. μεμιμημένος, ἐντεθυμημένος, ἐσκεμμένος, ᾐτιαμένος, κεκτημένος, can be either midd. or pass.

οὐ συνηδομένων οὐδὲ συνεθ The use of συν- in the first pair of compounds is incorrect: the meaning is, οὐκ ἐπιχαιρόντων οὐδ᾽ ἐθελόντων: but the form of the first clause is assimilated to that of the second. Cp. Thuc. I. 142 § 2, ἐπιτείχισις...ἡμῶν ἀντεπιτετειχισμένων, ‘when our city (Athens) is a counter-fortress to theirs’, as Shilleto takes it: the ἐπί in ἀντεπιτ. losing its proper force (‘on hostile soil’), and being merely in rhetorical symmetry with ἐπιτείχισις. — ἡμῶν] = τοῦδε μὲν τοῦ νηπίου, ἐμοῦ δὲ τοῦ γηραιοῦ, § 11. More boldly below, § 9, ὡς φονέα με διώκει.
