τὴν χώραν τεμν Cp. Thuc. II. 62 (Pericles to the Athenians, during the Peloponnesian invasion of 430 B.C.), οὐδ᾽ εἰκὸς χαλεπῶς φέρειν αὐτῶν (for your lands and houses) μᾶλλον οὐ κηπίον καὶ ἐγκαλλώπισμα πλούτου πρὸς ταύτην (the naval empire of Athens) νομίσαντες ὀλιγωρῆσαι.

κίνδυνος οὗτος ‘We know that on this one cast all our hopes of welfare are staked’: κίνδ. οὗτος, i.e. περὶ τῆς πατρίδος, the question whether the πάτριος πολιτεία (the Democracy) is to be maintained or not.
