Hello, Bingley !
Congratulations, it is excellent, as usual !

1. [face=SPIonic]bla/ptontej[/face] : rather [face=SPIonic]blapto/menoi[/face] , a passive voice -- [face=SPIonic]poli=tai[/face] typo -- [face=SPIonic]... oi( me\n poli=tai th\n dhmokrati\an lu=sai ou)k h)qe/lhsan o( de\ strathgo\j...[/face] would fit in instead of [face=SPIonic]kai/[/face]

2.
ok, but we find [face=SPIonic]tou= pole/mou pau/sasqai[/face] in Aristophanes, Lysistrata, 900

3.
It is [face=SPIonic]lipo/ntej[/face] cf accent on [face=SPIonic]lipw/n
th\n ma/xhn ou)k a)\n e)pau/samen - - th=j ma/xhj ou)k a)\n e)pausa/meqa[/face]

4.
[face=SPIonic]keklemme/nhn[/face] in both instances – maybe also [face=SPIonic]klapei=san[/face] ?
[face=SPIonic]oi(\[/face] don’t forget the accent on the relative pronoun.
