ἀπαρχὰς...τὸ ἱερόν ‘On the Acropolis, again, [as well as in the Διονύσιον and the Πύθιον] ‘they have dedicated tributes (ἀπαρχάς) from their substance, and have adorned the temple [τὸ ἱερόν=τὸν Παρθενῶνα] with images (ἀγάλμασι) in bronze and stone, — considerable in number, if it be remembered that the donors were private persons’. — ἀπαρχάς, firstfruits, [in Thuc. VI. 20 tithes paid by occupiers to landlords,] then ‘tributes’: cp. Eur. Androm. 150, where Hermione speaks of her robes and golden ornaments as ἀπαρχαί, ‘offerings’ made to her, as a bride, by her father. — πολλοῖς closely with ὡς ἀπὸ ἰδίας κτήσεως: Thuc. VI. 20, πόλεις...μεγάλας,...τό τε πλῆθος, ὡς ἐν μιᾷ νήσῳ, πολλὰς τὰς Ἑλληνίδας: Soph. Phil. 584, δρῶν ἀντιπάσχω χρηστά γ᾽ , οἰ̔̂ ἀνὴρ πένης. — ἀγάλμασι, not=ἀναθήμασι (§ 41), but ‘images’ or ‘statues’ of gods, as opp. to ἀνδριάντες, portrait-statues of men. Δικαιογένης i.e. Dicaeogenes I.: see stemma. ἡ ἐν *Ἁλιεῦσι μάχη Having made a descent on the coast of Argolis, the Athenians were defeated by the Corinthians and Epidaurians at Halieis, Ol. 80. 4, 457 B.C.: Thuc. I. 104. (Attic Orators, II. 353.) — Ἁλιεῦσι is due to Dobree. The traditional reading is ἡ ἐν Ἐλευσῖνι μάχη, which has been referred (1) by Palmer ap. Schöm. 342 to Ol. 80. 4, 457 B.C., when there were hostilities in the Megarid between the Athenians and the Corinthians: (2) by Reiske to Ol. 83. 4, 445 B.C., when the Lacedaemonians, invading Attica under Pleistoanax, advanced to Eleusis; Thuc. I. 114. But on neither occasion is a battle at Eleusis recorded. φυλαρχῶν τῆς *Ὀλυνθίας ἐν Σπαρτώλῳ ‘when commanding the cavalry of his tribe at Spartolus in the territory of Olynthus’: in Ol. 87. 4, 429 B.C., when the Athenians were defeated by the Chalcidians at Spartolus on the Chalcidic peninsula: Thuc. II. 79. — Scheibe rightly follows Palmer in reading Ὀλυνθίας for the vulg. Ὀλυσίας, which Dobree took as formed from Ὄλυνθος (‘ut Τρικορύσιος a Τρικόρυνθος Arist. Lys. 1034’), while Sir W. Jones actually explained it, ‘of the destructive cohort’. Reiske conj. Ὀδρυσίας or Ὀδυσσείας (the latter as the name of a cohort). — In 429 B.C. Spartolus belonged to the Βοττιαῖοι (Thuc. l.c.), but it had now come under the control of Olynthus: cp. Xen. Hellen. v. 2. 11 (Attic Orators, II. 354). Δικαιογένης i.e. the testator, Dicaeog. II. — ἐν Κνίδῳ: in 412 B.C., when an Athenian force of less than 20 sail was defeated, with the loss of six ships, by the Lacedaemonian fleet under Astyochus, Thuc. VIII. 42. The Paralos is mentioned soon afterwards as being with the Athenian army at Samos, Thuc. VIII. 74 (411 B.C.).
