τοσαῦτα ‘only thus much’: Thuc. II. 72.

ἀφῃρέθητε τὰ ὅπλα The Thirty formed a picked body of 3000 hoplites, and then proclaimed a general muster of all the hoplites in Athens. When this was over, the 3000 seized the arms which the other hoplites had piled in various places, and deposited them in the Acropolis; Xen. H. II. 3. 20, 41: Grote VIII. 336.

ἐξεκηρύχθητε The Thirty proclaimed that every one not included in the list of 3000 should quit Athens: Grote VIII. 349.

ἐκ τῶν πόλεων ‘The Laced. government, at the instance of the Thirty, issued an edict prohibiting all the members of their confederacy from harbouring fugitive Athenians’: ib. 350. The emigrants were received, however, in Megara, Thebes, Orôpus, Chalcis, Argos.
