"When they consider [the land] of their enemies to be their own, and theirs their enemies', and their fleet a revenue, and their revenue a non-revenue". This is said in accordance with the judgement of Perikles, who, when the Lakedaimonians were invading Attica,[1] ordered the Athenians not to go out [sc. and fight them], but to remain inside the wall, and to attack Lakonia themselves with the fleet. So [sc. his advice was] to regard passage by land as no-passage; but [passage] by sea, this [they were] to regard as passage. Alternatively, thus: to regard having as many ships as possible as [the] one financial resource. But the other means -- anything beyond this -- [they were] to regard as no-means, such as the theoric monies[2] and the jurors' pay. So his recommendation is to allocate all expense entailed in these areas to the [war]ships.

[2] Adler prints the paradosis qewrhtika/, but the context demands qewrika/, as in pi 1181.
